Flashcard 5 - Safety and Infection Control Flashcard Set for the NCLEX-RN Exam


The correct answer is:

ergonomic principles


Understanding basic ergonomic principles will assist you and your patients in avoiding accidents and injuries during daily activities and ambulation. This includes assessing your patients for the use of assistive devices (walkers, canes, etc.), changing positions frequently while sitting/supine, and stretches for those patients with specific musculoskeletal conditions. Nurses must incorporate these principles when transferring and assisting patients as well as when working at technology-based workstations.
