What should the nurse aid do to lift an object using good body mechanics?

A Bend knees and keep back straight

Maintaining proper spinal position with lifting is very important. When using the back muscles, bending at the waist, twisting, or trying to lift when the load is too heavy, the low back is at risk of injury . Common injuries associated with lifting are strains, sprains and herniated discs. For heavy loads, always find another person to help.
