Anytime an EMS stretcher is utilized, there is a need to consider several factors, including:

  • Verifying the canvas stretcher wheels - Verifying the security of the wheels. Brakes must also be checked to ensure that they are functioning properly. The chance of the patient slipping is reduced with stable wheels and effective brakes. When a stretcher is positioned on an elevated surface, they also prevent it from shifting.
  • Looking at the canvas stretcher legs - Regular inspections of the stretcher's legs are advised. Any slack screws or nuts should be tightened in between uses.

Medical workers should release their grip on the handles only after the stretcher is in position. The care providers should tightly hold the stretcher's handles during transfers from the stretcher to the bed or the other way around.

A practical approach to do this is to take into account the reputable vendors’ refurbished possibilities such as Canvas Equipment. Certified experts restore refurbished stretchers and other goods to their original manufacturer specifications.
  • Assessing the patient’s weight - Stretchers must be able to support the patient's weight even though they are made to be sturdy. The stretcher may occasionally need to support equipment while being transported. EMS staff can quickly select the appropriate stretcher with the appropriate weight capacity by assessing the patient's overall weight and body type.
  • Opting for a leveled ground when possible - the stretcher should be placed on flat ground for the safety of both the transporter and the patients. This is advised to avoid an accident where one of the EMS personnel loses balance or footing. It also guarantees patients a comfortable journey.
