The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Releases "Safe Patient Handling Training for Schools of Nursing" Toolkit. (www.cdc.gov/niosh/docs/2009-127/)
 

New ANA Video Promotes Safe Patient Handling to Protect Nurses’ Health
The American Nurses Association places a high priority on improving workplace safety by eliminating manual patient handling. ANA continues to demonstrate its commitment to protect nurses from debilitating injury through advocacy on Capitol Hill, the ANA Handle with Care® campaign (2003), and, more recently, the 2009 establishment of the ANA Handle with Care Recognition Program™.  The program acknowledges hospitals that have established safe patient handling programs consistent with ANA’s comprehensive criteria.
In this video, “ANA Safe Patient Handling,” hospital staff nurses and managers describe how the implementation of a safe patient handling program has had a positive impact on their jobs, their health, patient safety and the entire organization. ANA thanks Franklin Square Hospital Center in Baltimore, MD, for assistance in producing this video:
