An Excerpt from the course on Lifting and Moving Patients

Should you push or pull while moving?

A ground rule is, push whenever possible and always choose it over pulling. While pushing or pulling,

  • Keep the back locked in.
  • Keep the line of pull through the center of the body.
  • Keep the weight close to the body.
  • If the weight is below your waist, push or pull in the kneeling position.
  • Avoid pushing or pulling overhead.

Keep your elbows bent and arms close to your sides.
