Changing the Sheets

Phase II — The Slider Sheet System for Bed Repositioning
The task of manually repositioning patients in bed is the cause of approximately 25% of all patient handling musculoskeletal injury (MSI) compensation claims. When repositioning manually, nurses typically use a forceful lifting action combined with bending, twisting, and other awkward postures. Although ceiling lift technology can be an effective engineering control for reducing the risk of MSIs, few acute care units are fully equipped with such lifts. This project evaluated the use of a newly modified 2-part slider sheet system designed to solve the problems associated with manual repositioning in bed.

Prévention des troubles musculosquelettiques

Comment innover ?
En constante progression, les TMS sont souvent pris en compte lorsque le mal est déjé fait. Lutter contre leur méfaits nécessite de bousculer les habitudes en prenant le mal à la racine, très en amont, et en décloisonnant les entreprises pour aller à l'écoute des premiers concernés, les salariés.
