Hi Chrissie

They may not have a hoist in AMU but they should be able to get one from the hospital stores or from another ward temporarily whilst your Gran is an inpatient. Ellie's suggestion of PALS is a good idea if the ward won't resolve the issue. There should be signs around the ward with PALS contact details or any member of staff should be able to give you the details. They act as a liaison between the hospital and patients/families.

Best Wishes
