Prevent back injuries when transferring someone

Protecting the safety of the elders is of paramount importance for both home 

caregivers and hospital caregivers. The first thing we need to do is to reduce the risk 

of back injuries to the nursing staff. Only on the premise that the caregivers are not injured, 

we can serve for patients with the highest quality care. When we transfer patients, it is often 

the time when the risk of injury is the greatest. In order to reduce the risk of back injuries and 

back pain for caregivers, we need to learn the proper lifting techniques and methods. 

There are many examples of injuries caused by incorrect ways of lifting or moving loved ones. 

In fact, it is estimated that musculoskeletal injuries that occur as a result of lifting or moving 

patients affects nearly 52 percent of caregivers. Repositioning and transferring your loved ones 

without any help from additional people or assistive equipment will not only increase the risk of 

injury to the patient, but also put the nursing staff at risk. Positioning bed pad with reinforced 

handles can help make transfers much safer and easier for everyone involved in a senior’s daily 

care. Best of all, these pieces of transfer bed sheet will help you take care of your loved ones or 

people with limited mobility without the slightest discomfort.


They are equipped with 8 heavy-duty, reinforced handles used to aid family members and health 

care professionals in repositioning, turning and transferring the patient’s body in bed without 

pulling the patient’s body, arms or legs, and without the caregiver having to lift.
