Back Injury Prevention Health Care Workers: Guidelines for Transferring From the Floor Mobile App

The Back Injury Prevention Health Care Workers: Guidelines for Transferring From the Floor 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 Transferring From the Floor. When it is medically appropriate, use a mechanical assist device to lift people from the floor. If assist devices are not readily available or appropriate, you may have to perform a manual lift. When placing slings, blankets, draw sheets or cots under the person. 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. Make searching submissions easier by using a field in the app to name the submission.
