People Handling

People Handling

DVD Format

Healthcare Professionals are often involved in the movement of patients within their daily work. Safe moving and handling of people continues to be a major challenge in all health and social care settings, and poses a risk of injury for the carer and for the person. When patient handling is performed correctly, patients can be moved with ease and with reduced risk of injury, to both the patient and the healthcare professional.

This training DVD is produced by the Health Management Institute of Ireland, in partnership with the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists (ISCP). The 30 minute DVD:

• introduces moving and handling of people
• describes safer people handling practices
• features specialist guidance from a chartered physiotherapist
• outlines the process for people handling risk assessments
• sets out the principles of safer handling
• demonstrates the key safer handling techniques such as:

• rolling a person
• inserting and removing sliding sheets
• repositioning people using sliding sheets
• assisting people to stand and walk with handling belts
• the use of roll boards in lateral transfers
• using hoists
• highlights the important role you play in safer people handling

This People Handling DVD offers employers and employees a best practice guide on safer patient handling. It has been developed specifically for the Irish healthcare sector. It will be of great benefit to all frontline and ancillary staff within the acute and community hospital sectors; carers working in long-stay institutions, respite care and nursing homes; those who deliver home help services; providers of nurse education and FETAC People Handling Instruction Level 6 (6S0243); and VEC’s delivering SKILLVEC.
