    Proper lifting technique is only important when transferring patients.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Proper lifting technique is not only important when transferring patients, but also in various other situations such as lifting heavy objects, exercising, or performing manual labor. Using the correct technique helps prevent injuries, strains, and sprains by minimizing stress on the back and other body parts. It is crucial to maintain proper posture, engage the core muscles, and use the legs to lift rather than relying solely on the back. Therefore, the statement that proper lifting technique is only important when transferring patients is false.

    When transferring a patient, move quickly so that the patient is less likely to fall.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Moving quickly while transferring a patient can actually increase the risk of falls. When transferring a patient, it is important to prioritize their safety and take the necessary precautions to prevent accidents. Moving slowly and carefully allows the healthcare provider to maintain control and stability during the transfer, reducing the chances of the patient falling. Therefore, the statement is false.

    • A.

      Rotate by moving your feet

    • B.

Wiping shoes off when entering a building helps remove any dirt or moisture that may cause slipping. Cleaning up spills immediately prevents anyone from accidentally stepping on them and slipping. Wearing shoes with slip-resistant soles provides better traction and grip, reducing the risk of slipping on slippery surfaces. Therefore, all three actions mentioned in the options contribute to avoiding slips.

By looking where you walk, you can identify potential hazards or obstacles in your path and take necessary precautions to avoid tripping or falling. Similarly, walking where you look ensures that your body is aligned with your line of sight, reducing the risk of missteps or accidents. This practice promotes better balance and coordination, ultimately reducing the risk of injury from a trip.
