What Caregivers Have Been Saying

Caregivers Love the No Lift Transfers Program and Results


Kathi McKinney, Labette Health


“ Our nursing staff as well as our physical therapy department has found this training to be a very positive experience for us. Our staff has taken the time to come in on their days off to obtain the training. We feel it will make transfers much safer for our patients as well as for our staff.

We appreciate everything that Rick Carbaugh has taught us and we hope to use the new techniques with daily patient care. ”


Susan Ratcliff, Memorial Hermann Katy

RN Director of Education

“ We appreciate all of the hours of instruction for the Skills Enhancement program you developed for our facility. We have heard such positive comments on your professionalism and value the knowledge on lifting, turning and patient transfers that you brought to our staff at Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital.
The swivels, belts and vests were reviewed and purchased, and the staff will utilize this equipment for safe patient transfers. The website that you provided to us is professional and we will utilize it for staff development and for onboarding new employees. Thanks again for your expertise. ”


Trish Berns Memorial Health System Abilene, Kansas


“ 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. ”
