The app covers Assisting in Surgery. 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. Want to name app submissions by customer's name? GoCanvas can do that!

“I’m not a tech guy and I was able to pick this thing up in probably an hour, and actually start to build apps. I’ve done them over lunch when I’ve gotten frustrated with a process that didn’t exist in our company. So for non tech people who’ve got a problem, the support here is awesome and I’d recommend it to anybody, not just in our industry.”
