Feedback
A Bending the knees and keeping the feet wide apart provides a broad base of support and increases stability.
B The nurse should position himself or herself close to the patient or object being lifted. Having the patient or object close to the centre of gravity also helps maintain balance.
C Twisting should be avoided, as it increases the risk of back injury.
D The leg muscles should be used for lifting or moving. They are stronger, larger muscles capable of greater work without injury.
