When considering an injury prevention program such as Safe Patient Handling, it is important to understand the dynamics that exists when transitioning mechanical lifts into patient care settings.
The concept of mechanical hoists for lifting patients is somewhat foreign to professionals who are trained to consider compassionate human interactions and touch as therapeutic to the over-all healing process. With over 20 years of nursing experience while having worked in a variety of hospital settings, Roric’s value as a consultant consists of an ability to transition patient-lift innovations into patient-care settings while progressing its use into an acceptable standard of clinical practice amongst clinical staff. Understanding clinical cultures from this perspective makes it practical to implement injury prevention processes that directly aligns with providing quality patient care, all while practicing safer caregiver techniques.
So, when the question is asked why Roric, what you can expect is an experienced Registered Nurse / Safe Patient Handling Consultant who understands how patient care is delivered at the bedside. Through understanding the details involved in clinical operations, all recommendations provided will originate from a traditional patient-centered approach but a more modernized practice methodology that includes patient-lift equipment. Safe Patient Handling and Mobility programs are intended to create a well-organized collaboration between direct care staff and the services that support them; all of which is brought together to minimize injury risks related to manually lifting, moving, and handling patients.
