The safe handling, transferring and mobility of patients and residents is a major concern due to the risk of injury to both patients/residents and healthcare workers. This Safe Patient Handling Workshop is specifically designed to acquaint healthcare professionals with innovative strategies and practices that have proven effective in reducing employee and patient/ resident injuries from these types of incidents. Reducing these injuries translates to enhanced patient outcomes and employee safety.
This year we are specifically looking at how healthcare institutions can enhance their current patient handling and mobility program by utilizing best practices outlined in the ANA’s Safe Patient Handling and Mobility Interprofessional National Standards.
