I currently work for a home health agency where the client needs a Hoyer lift to get from her bed to a wheel chair and so on. The lift is an old one you have to pump and it is hard to move around. While I was meeting my client there was a nurse and other aides there and I over heard them saying that it is illegal in Maryland to operate a Hoyer lift without two people. I have tried to find a valid resource and cannot. I know in hospitals and nursing homes you have to have 2 people. Is it the same for home health care?
