In Feburary of 2015 a four-part radio series on patient handling injuries in healthcare facilities was aired. The series was produced by Daniel Zwerdling of National Public Radio. The reporting is high-quality and draws from the work of researchers and advocates and includes the voices of front-line health care workers.
Each segment is short and worth your time. Please share with co-workers, safety committee members and all others concerned about preventing injuries in your facility.A link to all four segments – – both audio and transcripts – – can be found HERE:
