I work in an Assistant Living facility. I was helping lifting and transferring a resident and the other employee dropped her side. The resident went down to the floor. I grab him and I felt a pull. On the way down the resident grab me by the waist in fear of the fall. We then lift him up off the floor and that's when I really felt the pull. My D.O.N and Administrator knew about the danger of this resident lift because I am the third person that has been hurt with lifting and transferring this resident?. Question 1: Because this is an Assistant Living facility, can they have an resident the is total lift? 2: If the employee know about the danger of lifting and transferring this resident and still required us to do so, can they be sued for putting there employer in harm.
