Safe Patient Handling Program

 

GNYHA developed a multifaceted approach to support members’ implementation of safe patient handling (SPH) programs through educational briefings, workforce training, planning assistance, and resources. Through these efforts, GNYHA supports hospitals in meeting requirements of New York State’s Safe Patient Handling Act, passed as part of the 2014–15 budget, which compels hospitals and other health care facilities to implement a facility-specific safe patient handling programs by January 1, 2017. Below are materials from GNYHA’s comprehensive program of briefings and training sessions for all levels of staff, from administration to frontline workers, on the essential elements of effective SPH.
