What Customers Are Saying About Us

  • “We had Rick Carbaugh in to provide transfer training for our staff. Many were skeptical at first wondering what more could be taught on how to transfer a patient. Not only did they learn the proper techniques, the staff was extremely excited after the training. They could not say enough about the training and what it provided…I highly recommend this program as it provides the proper techniques to transfer to protect both the patient and employee.”
    Trish Berns RN CNO - Memorial Health System Abilene
