Course Details

They account for 25% of all workers' compensation claims in the healthcare industry with unseen costs far above the treatment alone... and they are largely preventable.

Despite significant investments in equipment, training and lift teams, patient handling injuries continue to cause discomfort and pain to hospital workers, staffing issues for management, and a constant hit to the organization's bottom line.

Many of the costs are unseen – overtime to cover injured staff absences; staff replacement costs – injured workers often leave; and staff working with pain might not deliver an optimal patient experience, impacting satisfaction scores and other reimbursement metrics.

In this course we'll:

  • Review the costs of patient handling injuries to your organization – all of them, seen and unseen – and how they impact the bottom line and more
  • Examine the primary causes of patient handling injuries, uncovered during extensive root cause analysis
  • Share proven best practices in patient handling injury prevention, including risk identification, data collection and analysis, corrective actions, and ongoing risk assessment – that can make a difference in a short amount of time
  • Learn how to embed the best practices – through a systems safety approach – into your organization so you can sustain an injury free environment

Featured case study

100% reduction in patient handling injuries

You'll hear the story of how a hospital's intensive care unit, facing a dramatic increase in patient handling injuries, an incident rate of over 11 injuries per 100 employees, decreased morale and staff shortages, successfully reduced those injuries in quick and dramatic fashion.

Through workflow assessments, process analysis, observation, interviews and leadership engagement, a three-pronged plan was developed and implemented that produced an amazing 100% reduction in patient handling injuries in the unit.
