COVID 19 has contributed to many new challenges for us all including the ability to access safe patient handling, manual handling or no lift training for staff who work in hospitals, aged care, disability and home care within Australia. Louise O’Shea developed an online course several years ago specifically for health, disability and aged care workers in safe patient handling.

All aspects of Aged Care including High and Low Care and Dementia Specific Units from small individual sites to large multi-site organisations.
Rehabilitation is an area where the O’Shea System is used to achieve positive outcomes for the therapist, carer and the patient. Specific rehabilitation units include orthopaedics, neurology, spinal and aged care.
Many organisations caring for intellectually and physically disabled people successfully use the O’Shea System to control the hazardous manual tasks associated with this work. This includes care in group homes, specific facilities and the community.
The O’Shea System also covers the materials and people handling tasks that nurses, allied health, personal and home care workers undertake in the clients’ homes.
The O’Shea System is successfully used in all units ranging from Operating Theatre, Maternity, Rehabilitation, ICU, Emergency, Medical, Surgical, Orthopaedics and Palliative Care.
