Practical Sling and Hoisting Training for Care Homes

Hoist and Sling Training

Renewed confidence for your carers and patients

The moving and handling of patients / residents with varying needs and disabilities is a challenging one, especially in care homes. The safety of patients and carers alike is a constant concern to everyone.

Moving and handling training ensures that care environments become safer places for carers, nurses, patients/residents, indeed everyone!

Drawing on years of experience, we have developed training courses to educate staff, minimise injuries and maintain carer and patient/resident safety at all times. With courses structured to your needs, our training programmes offer value for money together with serious practical advice. Hands-on training with scenario based outcomes ensure carer staff have time to practice and develop real skills for the real situations that they will encounter in care home environments. We have skilled trainers available, who are all experienced in moving and handling and are able to offer solutions to the unique challenges you face.

Who benefits from training?

Some of the key areas identified as benefiting from training are as follows:

Management – Compliance with the law, peace of mind, increased efficiency (Staff time), reduced likelihood of litigation and associated costs from injury.

Carer staff – Have more confidence in handling patients/residents, have more time due to the increased efficiency, are kept safer and have less risk of injury. Achieve consistent care standards.

Patients/Residents – Are kept safer, are cared for better, have improved well-being, are more comfortable during manual handling.
