Course Overview

This program has been updated. Please click  HERE  for fully updated course.

Caring for patients in a healthcare environment can require nurses, aides, orderlies and other caregivers to lift as much as four thousand pounds during a typical shift. No wonder they're twice as likely to suffer musculoskeletal injuries on the job as employees in other industries. But these injuries don't have to occur.

Topics covered in these products include:

  • Patient handling and caregiver injuries.
  • Algorithms, patient assessment and body mechanics.
  • Repostioning a patient in bed.
  • Performing patient transfer tasks safely.
  • Mechanical lift devices.
  • and more.

All "Patient Handling Safety" products are available in English (Spanish will be available later in 2020).
