Nurses who work in hospitals are at a higher risk of injury when it comes to handling and moving patients. Often times patients who are ill, recovering from a surgery, or who are going through extensive treatments, become weak and fall. If nurses do not have the proper tools to help their patients back up, they can be at risk of injuring themselves or the patient. Injuries and musculoskeletal disorders and are common in nurses and other healthcare workers and are often caused by manually lifting and moving patients. These injuries are sometimes life-altering and career-ending. OSHA reports that there are 1,000’s of lifting-related injuries reported, and are costing hospitals millions of dollars each year. So, what are hospitals doing to help prevent these injuries?

Many states, including Texas, have implemented a state law that requires hospitals and nursing homes to have safe patient handling and movement procedures in place. These programs are important because they reduce the risk of injury for both healthcare workers and patients while improving the quality of patient care. This type of program should involve the use of an assisted device to ensure a safe lift. According to OSHA the use of lifting equipment is essential to a successful safe patient handling program and has been shown to reduce exposure to manual lifting injuries by up to 95%. 

In order to protect their nurses, hospitals need to have these lifting devices available, so that their nurses can use them when they need to lift a patient that has fallen. The Raizer Lift Chair, not only meets the standards that the safe handling law requires, but it also makes the patient feel safe and secure when being lifted back to their feet. The Raizer Lift chair is easily stored and transported and is gently placed around the patient. It can be used in even a small confined area. With only a supportive hand and push of button, the patient is carefully raised back up to an almost standing position. Nurses love that the chair keeps the patient safe, and at the same time, creates a sense of comfortable closeness with the patient when in use.
