Training covers:

  • Manual Handling definitions and hazardous characteristics
  • Manual Handling injuries and causes
  • Back care and injury prevention
  • Minimal-lift policy
  • Safe lifting principles
  • Safe resident/client transfers
  • Facility specific equipment (e.g. Lifting hoists, ceiling hoists, standing hoists, slide sheets)
  • Non-clinical manual handling hazards
  • Risk assessment and management principles
  • Employer/Employee responsibilities under the current OH&S legislation
  • Our Manual Handling Training program also includes specific competency assessments for clinical staff.

This program has the added benefit of helping Residential Aged Care Facilities comply with accreditation standards.

Healthcare 2 You successfully supports our facilities through accreditation. Our proven record is built on regular process and procedure reviews in a variable and changing environment.

The delivery of our on-site Physiotherapy service helps in satisfying components of the Aged Care Quality Standards introduced in July 2019:

  • Standard 1 – Consumer dignity and choice
  • Standard 2 – Ongoing assessment and planning with consumers
  • Standard 3 – Personal care and clinical care
  • Standard 4 – Services and supports for daily living
  • Standard 6 – Feedback and complaints
  • Standard 7 – Human resources

We also help maximise your facility’s ACFI funding in the areas of Mobility and Complex Health Care. Furthermore, our documentation systems provide ACFI appraisal evidence and comply with accreditation audits.
