Establishing teams to lift and move patients can be an effective way to prevent injuries to healthcare workers. But you must take the time and effort to properly educate staff about the team’s responsibilities. You also need to explain how and when lift teams are used.
HOW TO USE THIS TOOL
Use the Model Questionnaire to survey members of lift teams and others. The objective is to get employees in your facility thinking about how they would use lift teams and what effect such use might have on their daily work routine.
