Question:

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

A Bend knees and keep back straight
explanation

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.

There are definitely a few mistakes in this app, some of the answers are just plain wrong so make sure this is not your only source of study material. Other than that this app is very helpful.

I would love to give this app 5 stars but in the Nursing Skills section it does not allow you to go on to part 7. After you get to part 6 it either just never loads or it tells you to go to part 7 and does absolutely nothing.
