Products for Safe Patient Handling

[product] thumbnail

Forty-eight percent of injuries suffered by hospital employees that result in days away from work are due to overexertion and bodily reactions resulting from lifting, bending, or reaching, according to a 2011 OSHA report. The rate of injuries and illnesses among hospital workers is almost twice the rate for private industry as a whole. Nationwide, this means hospitals spend $2 billion on workers compensation losses.

In addition to staff injury, repositioning and turning patients can result in skin shear and skin injuries for patients. Scientific principles and extensive customer feedback regarding current methodologies led the EHOB Safe Patient Handling Team to design a solution for Anti-Shear, Turning and Repositioning plus MicroClimate, the ATR+ system. This system and EHOB’s additional Safe Patient Handling (SPH) tools allow facilities to protect their investment in their employees, their reputation, and their patients.
