Explain the consequences of not following an individual’s care plan or fully engaging with them when assisting and moving

An individual’s moving and handling plan can be found in care plan. It is very important to follow each individual’s moving and handling plan when assisting and moving them. This plan informs us how we should assist and move specific individual and whether there is any need for specific equipment or not. If we do not follow their care plan, then we will remain unaware of this useful information, and can cause an individual harm or injury.
Assisting and moving individuals require verbal or non-verbal instructions and interactions. Therefore, we require fully engaging them when assisting and moving. Failure to do so can result in harm and injury due to lack of concentration and motivation.
