Back Injury Prevention Health Care Workers: Guidelines for Performing Activities if Daily Living Mobile App

The Back Injury Prevention Health Care Workers: Guidelines for Performing Activities of Daily Living 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. The app covers Performing Activities if Daily Living. It is often necessary to transport people in gurneys, wheelchairs, or beds or handle various types of carts, monitors, instrument sets and other medical equipment. 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. You can use a field in your app to name your submission.
