The MHA Keystone Center will host a workshop on safe patient handling as part of its statewide workplace safety collaborative. The day-long session will take place July 23 at the VisTaTech Center at Schoolcraft College, Livonia and feature presentations on how to mitigate harm associated with patient handling.
Patient mobility is important, but how to do it safely for patients and healthcare professionals is crucial. Attendees will hear perspectives of the patient and injured healthcare worker as well as from hospitals that have implemented programs in safe patient handling. The event will also include a collaborative panel discussion to encourage dialog and sharing among healthcare staff.
