    Data Analysis
    • Musculoskeletal injuries related to resident handling
    • Root cause of injuries
    • Staff issues with equipment use
    • Costs from loss run reports
    • Cost-benefit analysis

    Speaker Notes:

    Data analysis involves the following steps:

    • Identifying the leading types of musculoskeletal injuries related to resident handling, as well as the department and staff involved in the injury
    • Identify the root cause of injuries in high-risk areas
    • Identify what issues prevent staff from using the equipment, i.e., lack of availability, lack of storage, lack of training, etc.
    • Identify the costs from the lost run reports associated with resident handling injuries
    • Completing a cost-benefit analysis of the return on investment and the cost to the organization if nothing is done based on the history projected forward
