Hi Julie,
This is essentially what we did with Angela Greetham at Whakatane hospital with a regular mesh sling and a in that case a floor hoist instead of manual lift. We had to use a floor hoist there as the walls and ceiling were not up to fixing a ceiling gantry system and the ward wanted the hoist to cover the ward too. Gantry would be ideal space wise for sure and four point H system would be the tip top for positioning and avoiding the gantry legs. The pool at Whakatane was pretty deep so a manual lift was just out of the question really.
