Image Gallery 1 — Image Gallery 2


Care staff who undertake bariatric patient care in clinics, hospitals and other medical facilities find that they increasingly encounter people of many different shapes and sizes. Bariatric patient care can take place in specialised bariatric units – or be integrated into general or critical care areas, including emergency departments, operating rooms, medical/surgical units, long-term care facilities, etc.


Bariatric Care

The care of bariatric patients presents particular challenges related to promotion of dignity, respect and comfort. These patients’ medical conditions and physical limitations often limit their ability to function in essential day-to-day activities such as hygiene, mobility and positioning. Each patient’s degree of mobility determines the type and amount of assistance needed.

Adding more care staff may not always limit the risk of injury, and the use of Safe Patient Handling technology will be required to keep patients and care staff safe – and to promote quality of care and service.




The kinds of lifting and handling tasks frequently carried out in bariatric care:

  • transferring patients to and from bed/chair, chair/toilet or chair/ chair
  • lateral transfer of patients to and from bed/stretcher/trolley
  • repositioning patients in bed – from side to side, up in bed
  • repositioning patients in wheelchair, chair or geriatric chair
  • patient handling that requires access to particular parts of the body (limbs, abdominal areas, etc.)
  • transporting (stretcher)
  • assistance with wound treatment and skin care
