Safe Patient Handling│Safe patient handling involves the use of assistive devices to ensure that patients can be mobilized safely and that care providers avoid performing high-risk manual patient handling tasks. Using the devices reduces a care provider’s risk of injury and improves the safety and quality of patient care.

The Safe Patient Handling Program at SBELIH utilizes proven methods and the latest specialized devices and equipment to keep patients and staff safe when they need to be moved and lifted.

The most important assistive devices are the patient transfer devices that help care providers transfer patients from beds to stretchers or wheelchairs and can even help them walk. The lifting equipment uses slings or belts to hold patients securely.
