Description

A priority in health care facilities is the abundance of back injuries among nursing staff due to manual patient handling practices. Injured nurses are increasing worker’s compensation costs and causing high levels of staff turnover. This Safe Patient Handling Champion course teaches clinical leadership the importance of utilizing safe patient handling practices for preventing injury and provides a guideline for how to create a Safe Patient Handling program that works for every environment. It instructs on the history of the problem, reviews safe lifting equipment and best practices for performing lifting safely, and instructs on methods of developing a program for Safe Patient Handling through pre-assessment, implementation, and evaluation. This is considered to be an advanced course.
