Hi stacey1210,

1 This about how working with someone who has osteoporosis, arthritis or pressure sores etc will affect the way that you move and handle them.

2 Under legislation you have many duties not only in what you do eg health and safety but also in how you respect the individual and include them in their own care. You must also follow your setting's policies and procedures and each individual will have their own care plan (agreed ways of working) which must be adhered to.

Hope that helps

yes that did help thank you also

1) Describe what health and safety factors need to be taken into account when moving and positioning individuals and any equipment used to do this?

Does this mean using a hoist (ensure it is in fully working order before each use)
slide sheet (not tearing/peeling the skin)
using a sling, frames and chairs etc correctly
Also ensuring there is enough space to do the agreed activity and you are able to move around safely (without wires etc training along the floor)
Huh??
