Free White Paper: Hospital Tests Patient Lift Technologies; Improves Quality of Care
Date:8/6/2008

FRANKLIN, Mass., Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- A new, free white paper details how a Michigan hospital improved patient care -- and reduced manual lifting injuries -- by testing new products and designs utilizing a mock-up patient room in an effort to implement forward-looking patient handling technologies.

The white paper, titled "Michigan Hospital Leads the Way with Patient-Focused Environments and Leading-Edge Patient Lifting Technologies," is available for free download at: http://www.safeliftingportal.com/hospital-patient-lifting.

The white paper details how the advanced planning, product research and equipment testing at Saint Joseph Mercy Health System (SJMHS) in Ann Arbor, Michigan have resulted in a facility-wide success story and increased patient quality of care by decreasing lifting injuries through out the hospital.

"What really aided in the success of this project is the complete mock-up patient room that was built on-site to run tests and functional simulations," said Tom Tocco, director of facilities and plant operations at SJMH. "That enabled us to select the best systems and products for our patients. Now, we have taken the tried-and-true mock-up room and re-created it 356 times in the new tower."

The new state-of-the-art tower includes facility-wide wireless internet access and inter-hospital overhead rail systems which has greatly decreased patient lifting injuries and significantly reduced worker's compensation claims. -- Do we have proof?
