SUPPLEMENT: Safe Patient Handling & Movement: Equipment Safety



This second supplement on equipment safety follows on from the sling safety supplement published in the September 2012 issue of the American Journal of Safe Patient Handling and Movement and focuses on the equipment itself. The objectives are designed to provide the reader with knowledge of the actual and potential safety risks when using lifting, transferring, repositioning, and patient ambulation equipment and to identify ways in which the risk of accidents and injuries to caregivers and patients can be reduced.
