Safe Patient Handling and Moving Program

It is not practical to totally eliminate manual effort from the transfer process, even with the use of patient assist transfer equipment. Most equipment still requires the installation of straps belts and often some re-positioning before the transfer is performed. An effective safe patient handling program begins with a staff trained in the best practices for manual safe patient handling.

Best practices have changed dramatically over the last 15 years, and we have molded our knowledge and experience into our current safe patient handling program we offer today.

During that time, we have been privileged to train more than 50,000 caregiver staff one-on-one our skill enhancement program.
