Recently in a couple of our big cardiac rooms we installed what we affectionately call the "Shamu lift", a thing attached to the ceiling that can lift these 500+ pounders out of the EMS stretchers and whatnot. Of course, it's there on the ceiling and no one has been trained on it, so its' just a really expensive decoration at this point. We old, crotchety nurses can't lift 'em like 3 fire medic crews can.
