Patient‐handling tasks are typically performed manually and often repetitively, and include such movements as lifting, transferring and repositioning patients.
The US Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that nursing personnel are among the highest at risk for MSDs (musculoskeletal disorders)
Patient‐handling tasks most frequently associated with low back pain include lifting and forced, sudden or strained movements (such as those involved in patient fall interventions).
Continuous or repeated performance of these activities throughout one’s working lifetime greatly increases the chances of developing MSDs.
Research regarding the impact of musculoskeletal injuries on nurses has shown the following：
- 52% complain of chronic back pain
- 12% of nurses report that they have left nursing “for good” because of back pain
- 20% of RNs transferred to a different unit, position or employment because of lower back pain
- 38% of RNs have suffered occupational‐related back pain severe enough to require taking leave from work
- 6%, 8% and 11% of RNs reported changing jobs for neck, shoulder and back problems, respectively.
