TEXT VERSION OF TITLE SLIDE:
Contents: An opportunity existed to reduce the # of patient handling injuries
occurring with hospital staff and retain experienced nurses leaving the
profession due to the physical demands of the job.
In September 2007 we implemented the Patient Mobility Team program in three Bon
Secours Richmond hospitals. A review of injury data for Bon Secours Richmond
showed that patient handling was the highest risk activity for nurses getting
injured on the job.
