Challenges grow for companies to produce equipment that assists professionals to deliver dignified care as well as a safe handling and a risk free environment for client and carer. Safe patient handling programmes will always be in place, whether in a hospital environment or in a patients home. Many carers have developed muscle and skeletal injuries over time caused by physical stress and exertion on their bodies when caring for patients whilst lifting or re-positioning. Appropriate steps should be taken to reduce the risk of injury to carers to the lowest level that is reasonably practical.
