MBSH Trains Staff on Safe Patient Handling

MBSH Trains Staff on Safe Patient Handling

Hospital staff were instructed on safe patient handling during the first week of April at Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital.  The training is to ensure that all medical personnel involved in lifting and transferring patients will be able to safely operate the equipment available to them.

This training is required for all employees who encounter patient handling and movement activities.  The focus is to demonstrate the correct use of the equipment that should help them avoid injuries to both themselves and their patients.  Patient transfers such as helping patients in and out of bed, in and out of wheel chairs or assisting to and from restrooms are activities which have the potential for injuries.

Jennifer Zimmermann, RN, infection prevention and occupational health specialist said, “We are glad that we have equipment readily available for assisting with patient transfers.”  She continued “both our patients and employees benefit from the proper use of these tools.”
