Lifting a patient, a heavy object, or transporting a load, is a normal part of the workday for medical personnel. While the typical reaction is to get the task done right away, this course shows how and why each lift must be completely thought through in advance. Dedicated to ensuring all medical personnel fully understand how to lift safely, this course begins by explaining the structure and function of the back. Upon seeing how the back does most of the work when lifting or carrying, healthcare workers quickly learn how to lift and move objects and patients correctly, including what not to do. Use this course so all medical personnel at the healthcare facility know why and how to lift correctly and safely to avoid back pain and injuries.
