At CVHP, we are committed to providing the safest possible workplace for our staff, and one of the ways we do this is through a new program that includes lift teams and state-of-the-art equipment. Transport technicians make regularly scheduled visits to units specifically to assist with tasks that require multiple team members. Our equipment, which includes vertical lifts, sit-to-stand assists and lateral transfer aids, also plays a key role in decreasing the risk of injury to our staff members.
Here's what a few of our employees had to say about some of our new equipment:
“Overall great machine - simplifies and makes the job 100 percent safer for staff.”
OT, QVC REHAB
“Safer to move patients and easier for the staff - I don’t have to worry about breaking my back. We love it for moving patients from a wheelchair to gurney or out of car transfers.”
EMT, ICC ED
“The slider sheet works great for repositioning and transferring patients. It is easy to use, easy to carry and easy to store in the dept. We love them!”
RN, ICC OR
