A major practice that may be overlooked in the nursing field is how to move patients. Since nurses care for a diverse patient group, some patients may have limited to no mobility. In these cases, the nursing team must decide how to move the patient to provide care while still maintaining a safe environment. The purpose of this project is to evaluate current evidence on the safest ways to move and ambulate patients, while still maintaining the effectiveness that must be present in the medical environment. Hopefully, through this research, effective and safe ambulating practices can be determined.
