After training a few thousand nurses, CNAs and physical therapist, I can say with some authority that the techniques required to safely transfer patients has not been taught. The principle of the Balance Pivot is not obvious at first glance but it is the same principle used by your appliance delivery man. He is able to move an appliance that weighs more than he does and take it away. So how is this done?
Join me in a free 20 minute webinar where I will reveal the secret to the balance pivot. I will slow down the action and show what is going on and how it can reduce the patient transfer load to 10% of the patients weight. Reply with an email to email@example.com and I will forward the dates and times. It will change the way you think about patient transfer tasks.
