This study by Noble and Sweeney, published in Workplace Health & Safety, assessed barriers to the use of assistive devices in safe patient handling and mobility that contribute to health care worker injuries.
This study confirmed that the most influential factors in the decision to use assistive devices for patient transfers are time constraints and difficult patient-handling situations. These factors lead to infrequent use of assistive devices, especially mechanical devices that are difficult to retrieve or not readily available.
