How to Safely Transport a Client

Inservice Summary

Medical problems and/or physical limitations can and often do restrict a client’s ability to move around and walk. Transporting clients is a primary responsibility of the Certified Nursing Assistant and other Health Aides. Transporting a client can be required when providing personal care, as a preventive technique to avoid development of pressure ulcers, to change linen when someone cannot get out of bed, or to help a client move from a bed to a wheelchair/chair or to return to bed. These situations are a common part of the day-to-day practice of the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) who requires considerable skill, practice and knowledge of special techniques when transporting clients in any situation, whether a considerable distance, move from bed to a chair or change positions.
