Transporting a client safely is a primary responsibility of the health care professional. Understanding the client's limitations is a vital component prior to performing any transport and reviewing any medical issues or physical limitations is vital. Some transports may be simple and the client may never leave the bed and others could be complicated. Assessing the client prior to beginning the transport is important and reviewing medical records to determine any equipment needed in order to complete the transport safely should always be done. A vital area to review prior to any transport is a client’s fall risk. Health care professionals need to understand the client’s limitations, be aware of any devices the client uses to ambulate, and be mindful of the type of transport he or she is assisting with prior to beginning.
