    • Providing care to nursing home residents is physically demanding work
    • Nursing home residents often require assistance to walk, bathe, or perform other normal daily activities

    Manual lifting and other tasks are associated with an increased risk of pain and injury to caregivers.

    Risk factors include force, repetition and awkward postures
