It looks like most direct patient care jobs require lifting of over 50 lbs. This could entail lifting a 300 lb. patient by oneself. What healthcare jobs involving direct patient care (or indirect care) do not require heavy lifting? Are there any accommodations provided to assist with heavy lifting for the healthcare jobs that do require the lifting?

The one job I actually had, that had no lifting requirement , was telephone triage in a doctor's office. But the pay was easily less than 1/2 what I got in the hospital. And you need to have actual nursing experience to expect to be hired in this capacity.
