Back Injury Prevention Health Care Workers: Guidelines for Ambulating, Repositioning and Manipulatin Mobile App
The Back Injury Prevention Health Care Workers: Guidelines for Ambulating, Repositioning and Manipulating mobile app is designed to provide general guidance for employers and employees about how to prevent back injury as a result of lifting and moving patients and residents.
How does it work?
The app covers Guidelines for Ambulating, Repositioning and Manipulating. These work tasks are usually performed in or around beds, gurneys, chairs, toilets, showers and bathtubs. Equipment commonly used includes gait or transfer belts with handles (for better grips and stability), pivot discs, draw sheets and incontinence pads. It may be useful in settings such as hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, board and care homes, and during the provision of home health care. The app is based on currently available information, but the study of how to prevent back injuries is a dynamic process and new information is constantly being developed. Ask your staff for their ideas and input. GoCanvas apps can easily be edited and customized. Access your data at the office, in the field or at home with the GoCanvas Cloud.
