Depending on the setting, nurses are frequently involved in patient transfers. Transferring a patient may be considered a high-risk maneuver because of the potential harm posed to the patient and the provider. While there is no consistent method used to teach proper transfer techniques, simulation-based or hands-on training is encouraged in teaching these advanced patient handling methods. Patient-handling tasks such as transfers, lifting, and repositioning patients are physically demanding and often require strenuous movements and awkward positioning for the provider. Using assistive devices such as gait belts, walking belts, and multi-person teams may reduce the burden placed on providers who routinely perform patient transfers. Attention to proper ergonomics may reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injuries to healthcare personnel. 1e1e36bf2d
