Lift Team members go through an extensive process to become lift team technicians. The process consists of a lot of hands on training with other lift team employees. We also train them on obesity sensitive issues. Our main requirement for a lift team member is a willingness to learn and work with the patients and staff. The Lift Team employees are all CNA certified and trained in ergonomics. Lift Team tech members will be observed quarterly by an ergonomic expert, and a yearly competency review in patient handling in order to insure skills are maintained.
