Safe Patient Handling
ESA has helped acute and long-term care facilities from across Canada implement state-of-the-art safe patient handling systems. Our systematic approach includes a review of the existing patient handling policies, procedures and equipment. Building on current strengths, ESA will help develop patient handling policies and procedures tailored to the organization or facility. This is followed up with training for both management and front-line workers to provide them with the information and skills they need to assess, handle and transfer patients safely.
