The ASPHP is always thinking “advocacy” and how we can market the necessity of the development, installation and maintenance of a sound safe patient handling and mobility program. To assist in spreading the “message” in the long term care market, ASPHP Board representatives and members worked together to develop a SPHM in LTC poster. Below, you will find a pdf of this poster for your utilization. Please copy and produce the poster for your use.
OSHA Instruction, National Emphasis Program (NEP), which became effective 4.5.14, sets forth policy and procedures for targeting and conducting programmed inspections of nursing and residential care facilities.
In its interest in reaching out to Long Term Care facilities, the ASPHP Long Term Care committee has developed a brochure that introduces the science and practice of safe patient handling and mobility.
