I have never seen this done in an Aged care facility.I wonder why the transfer to the commode was uncomfortable . I would check whether the hoist sling was large enough for a Bariatric patient and whether the commode was padded and a suitable size. Was the hoist a ceiling one or a mobile one.It seems like a last resort to me . If there are no safety issues then patient comfort and preferences need to be considered regards
