If you have our Care Planning Tool feature, you'll now be able to assess and document a moving and handling risk assessment digitally using Birdie. 

The moving and handling of care recipients is a regular task in your caregivers day to day and if not done safely, can cause serious injury to both caregivers and care recipients. Creating a risk assessment allows you to recognise and assess any potential risks in order to reduce them.

How to use the Moving and handling assessment on Birdie

Select your client and navigate to their Care plan section, once there you'll find the Moving and handling assessment below the Care plan categories.

Go through each of the questions in the following sections in the assessment; client specific, mobility, transfers, working environment, equipment until you have completed the assessment for the care recipient.
