Gundersen Lutheran Health System is Recognized for Safe Lifting Leadership
Date:3/17/2009

patient and employee safety, Gary Brunslik, Manager of Safety, commented, "Preventing staff injury is good business from the financial standpoint, but also, it is the right thing to do." Kathy Weitekamp, RN, BSN, Care Manager, went on to say, "We've been able to show a 57% decrease in the number of patient handling claims, which we feel is pretty significant. Lost time has gone down 78% and restricted time has gone down 81%, so we're very pleased. Our ceiling lift return on investment has been less than three years." Dr. William Scorby, Medical Director for Employee Health, added, "We also see the safe lifting program as playing an important role in staff retention and recruiting - keeping our experienced nurses safe and injury free while attracting new nurses trained in safe lifting techniques to Gundersen Lutheran."

The objective of the Safe Lifting Leadership Award is to encourage other institutions to follow the lead of "best practices" institutions in their attempts to instill permanent, sustainable culture change - a so-called "culture of safety" - within their organizations. Patient safety, advocacy for healthcare excellence, successful implementation of safe lifting initiatives, and willingness to share results and assist other institutions are among key evaluation criteria for the award.
