When transferring a client, which body part of the nurse aid are used to support most of the client's weight?

A Legs

The nurse aide should be positioned to support the customer by using the legs when transferring a customer. Keep your back straight and locked; do not turn or twist. If you bend, do so at the hips, not the waist. Before beginning the transfer, assess how much the customer is able to do. If you have any doubts, always ask for assistance from a co-worker.
