Question and answer
impactof specific condition to correct moving and positioning
The most common injuries that carers experience are back injuries, which affect more than a million people in the UK. Injuring your back will limit your movement and your ability to care for someone. [ It could take a long time for you to recover. Lifting someone incorrectly can also damage fragile skin, cause shoulder and neck injuries, increase existing breathing difficulties or cause bruising or cuts. Lifting techniques Before attempting to move someone, ask yourself: Does the person need help to move? Does the person require help or supervision? Have you told the person you're moving
them? How heavy is the person you're moving? Are you healthy and strong enough to move them? Is there anyone who could help you? How long will it take? Is there enough space around you? Are there any obstacles in the way? Are you wearing suitable clothing and shoes? If you have assessed the situation and have decided to move the person, follow the advice below: Never lift above shoulder height. Make sure your feet are stable. Take a firm hold. Keep any weight close to your body. Keep your back straight and bend your knees. Lift as smoothly as possible. ]
