3.3 risk was faulty hoist? Then what would you

3.3 First of all you would look at the persons care plan on how the client would like to be moved. You would also look around the client to see if there are any immediate risks to the individual i.e. wires, other things in the way that could prevent you doing your own job safely.

3.4 Any risks identified would have to be seen to first I.e. if there are wires around the person like mobile phone chargers or rubbish you would have to make the area safe without causing any risks to yourself. What about if risk was faulty hoist? Then what would you do?

3.5 I would talk to the client and explain the pros and cons if it could affect there care or health and safety I would point out the risks and I would also explain witch option would be ideally safer. And I would also call a senior manager to explain what is happening and ask for advice as the person may need a change of face to explain with the least restrictive options.

5.3 Aids could be from hoist to stand aid, Zimmer frames. People may need to use slide sheets when there in bed to lift the person up the bed or to turn the client from one side to the other.

1.1 Take a man for example having a penis and having to use a banana board to move from chair to bed the carer would have to be careful not to catch the man’s penis or sack while assisting the client to move. This could be asking the client to lift his sack up so they can get the board underneath him to assist the transfer without causing injury to client.  This question is asking how the human body works in relation to how it moves, eg joints, leavers, skeleton, muscles etc. 

1.2 As each client may be different so could the specific conditions on the correct movement be and positioning to each client as you would not use a hoist on an abled body person you would be encouraging the person to do things for them self unless there was a reason like if the person might of fell and they may need help getting from floor if they were unable to get them self-up due to been frail but this would already have been risked assessed. Were as a client who may have a leg missing due to medical reasons may need help to get in and out of bed and from chair to chair.

2.1 Legislation and agreed ways of working will protect staff and clients from any risks as much as possible. You would also have moving and handling training that teaches you how to move clients and use aids safely which protects the staff and clients from things going wrong.

2.2 Before you move a client you will first make sure the area is safe and that there is adequate lighting and enough staff to support as if your using a hoist you would need two staff for good practice. You would also make sure client can consent as well as talking to the client step by step if the client is unable to consent due to lack of capacity you would use best interest decision and least restrictive.

6.1 I would seek advice or assistance to move and handle about moving or positioning safely if I was in any doubt, if client was distressed or showing any signs of becoming distressed or wanting a second point of view just to double check myself.

6.2 sources would be clearly written in the care plan but as things can change if I was unsure I would seek advice from management or moving handling trainer.
