The Tampa VA and Education Foundation develops and test innovations with the goal of decreasing the risk to caregivers and patients from patient handling and movement. They have developed many tools and templates and have a large number of useful tools and documents on their webpage. On this site you will find a six-part bariatric patient toolkit, primers on sling selection and sample facility policies, among other resources. Some of the tools have been loaded onto this BLOG for your access and convenience.
