If you aides have already the needed skills for safe transfers, you might look at what seems to frighten the patient during transfers. If I am reading your comments correctly, it sounds like she is not upset when you are involved in the transfer. You might look at what you do during the transfer that seems to reassure her. Is your approach different? Is your voice calmer? Do you hold her more securely? It may be that she has bonded to you more than the others.
You might have to work with the staff to develop a consistent procedure, so the patient will feel secure, no matter who is involved in the transfer.
If you are not successful in solving this problem, you might consider making arrangements for a nurse or therapist to assess the situation and work with you and your staff to solve the situation.
Good luck in your endeavors to provide safe, individualized care to your patients.
