Moving And Handling Training
Moving and handling training is extremely important for carers who are assisting in moving and transferring patients or residents with reduced or limited mobility. Manual handling is frequently conducted with the assistance of specialised equipment, therefore specialised training is imperative. This equipment might include lifts or hoists, stand-assist devices, slide sheets and slings. As well as, profiling beds, mattresses and riser recliner chairs. The fundamental aim of training is to protect the patient’s and caregiver’s health and safety through the employment of and adherence to correct and clinically proven guidance. Patients and/or caregivers can suffer varying degrees of injury if this guidance is not continually followed.
Moving and handling training is also necessary for the purposes of insurance. Additionally, ensuring that industry compliance standards and laws are met. Evidence of a caregiver’s ability to competently perform and help with patient handling responsibilities is critical for building and maintaining a safe environment.
