Safe Patient Handling - Creating a Culture of Safety

Gain new insights in the latest developments and best practices for safe patient handling while reducing nurse injuries.

The Safe Patient Handling: Reducing Injuries and Creating a Culture of Safety on-demand webinar is designed to equip members of health care management, risk management, nursing management and staff, human resources, and physical and occupational therapists to understand the critical need to establish a safe patient handling and mobility culture of safety and to begin to analyze what drives optimal program development. A culture of safety is an essential ingredient to a high quality of care and life for hospital patients, residents in LTC facilities or assisted living, and a high quality of work experience for employees. The benefits are attributed to improved quality of care, increased patient and resident comfort, improved patient, resident and staff satisfaction, reduced workers’ compensation costs, reduced lost and restricted workdays, reduced overtime and sick leave, reduced risk of falls, friction burns, skin tears, bruises, and dislocated shoulders, and higher staff morale.

This on-demand webinar will prepare you to identify the scope and profile of incidents and accidents, describe safe patient handling principles, describe principles of ergonomics, identify technologies to reduce risks, identify unique clinical and environmental risks that cause injury, outline steps to implementing a Culture of Safety program, utilize teaching strategies to enhance staff competencies, and identify systems and tools that can enhance safe practices.
