feet don't touch floor in a geri chair?
Just moved my mother to a different nursing home. She is in a geri chair due to falling out of bed & fracturing a vertebrae in January. The chair at the other nursing home...you could raise & lower the back separately. On the geri chair in this nursing home, the foot rest only goes up when the back reclines. when she is sitting up in the chair, the foot rest goes down & her feet don't touch the floor. Is that normal for a geri chair...for the feet not to touch? She is not that short...prolly 5' 4
