FRANKLIN, Mass., June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- A new, free educational booklet, compiling dozens of the most-asked questions by healthcare professionals about starting-up and managing a safe lifting program, is available for free download at: http://www.safeliftingportal.com/lift-doctor-booklet.

Titled, "Ask the Lift Doctor -- Real-World Questions and Answers about Safe Lifting," the booklet compiles two years worth of questions and answers sent in by healthcare professionals -- nurses, nurse practitioners, administrators and others -- to the Safe Lifting Portal injury prevention website's (http://www.safeliftingportal.com) popular "Lift Doctor."

The "Lift Doctor" is a panel of Liko Specialists, which includes a sling application expert, bariatric specialist, lift system design consultant, risk management professional, safety director, and an overhead installation designer.

Designed to help those starting up and managing Safe Lifting Programs to prevent patient and healthcare provider injuries in healthcare facilities and hospitals, the 22-chapter booklet covers a wealth of topics related to patient-specific injuries, training, policies, procedures, and general patient lift usage.

The booklet is just one of the many available informational tools of the Safe Lifting Portal, the Liko North America-sponsored online resource to educate and guide healthcare professionals and administrators on a host of safe patient lifting and handling topics. The Safe Lifting Portal provides how-to information on creating a safe patient handling program, achieving caregiver buy-in, tracking legislative activities, and calculating the projected savings that can result from the implementation of a Safe Lifting Program.
