When designing a safe patient handling program, it is essential to assess current equipment needs and areas of high risk. If you would like help conducting a comprehensive facility assessment, please contact a Hill-Rom sales representative. Although we encourage you to participate in a live facility assessment facilitated by Hill-Rom, you may consult the tools in this section for general recommendations and references.
An assessment of your facility's safe patient handling high-risk areas and equipment currently available can be compared with PHAMA recommendations to provide a guide as to the number of lifts and slings that may need to be purchased.
This is an example of a facility assessment tool that is currently in use at Veteran's Administration (VA) facilities.
