Moving and Handling
Moving and handling the patient is not only a considerable part of a carer’s job, but the act of manually handling vulnerable people is also a risky one. According to the Health and Safety Executive well over 100,000 people a year are injured in manual handling accidents.
Moving and handling is involved every time a carer helps someone in or out of bed; supports them while bathing or showering; helping them use the toilet; assisting them to stand, sit or walk; lifting them into and out of a vehicle. It’s a physical effort required frequently when caring for someone, but the burden can be lightened with the help of specially designed moving and handling aids.
