Question and answer
Describe what health and safety factors need to be taken into account when moving and positioning individuals.
When moving an individual you must take into account if they have any conditions that acquire special moving techniques. [ Here are a few examples; Individuals with Parkinson’s may have limb rigidity which can affect their ability of movement and cause limitations. When moving the individual into different positions you must make sure to force the rigid limbs as this can cause further pain and
discomfort. Individuals that have had a stroke often have long-term and devastating weakness down one side of their body. When moving that individual you must be aware of the extent of the stroke and on which side of the body has been effected. ]
