A great day and great feedback following the recent training at DHL Hospital Services…………
We attended a one-day Moving People train the trainer update with Solutions – a much-needed refresher to sharpen our training skills and to reinforce learned moving & handling techniques used to offset the risks of cumulative strain. We also brought into the concept of changing our instructions when teaching staff to drop their hips rather than bending their knees when lifting patients as this reduces pressure on the back. Another main point we took on board was the importance of not leaving a fallen patient on the floor for too long avoiding the risk of them developing rhabdomyolysis. Following this training, we will be changing our internal procedures when dealing with falling people.
A valuable training day, we left with the thought that the training was time well spent.
Thank you for your time and support.
