Decades of collaboration with healthcare professionals have taught us that safe patient handling is about more than just equipment. It’s about ensuring safety and efficiency for patients, residents, and care providers. With proper safe patient handling and mobilization, patients and residents are exposed to an improved quality of care — and care providers are exposed to safer working environments where they can improve their clinical practices — which can result in improved outcomes for all.
Safe Patient Handling and Mobility Objectives
- Improve the working conditions for care providers by decreasing the risk of musculoskeletal overload (and the consequent absenteeism and costs)
- Ensure the quality of care, safety, and dignity for patients and residents (including personal hygiene)
