Safe Patient Handling and Mobility Laws and Regulations


States MapDid You Know…?

Provoked by ANA’s Handle and Care Campaign which began back in 2003,  eleven states have now enacted “safe patient handling” laws/regulations.  That’s right,  ELEVEN!

California, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, Texas, and Washington have now all taken the steps to establish policies, guidelines, and laws to secure appropriate equipment, training and evaluation when it comes to safe patient handling.

Take the appropriate steps to make sure your facility is up to date and prepared for once your state passes these new SPH and Mobility Laws and Regulations.   Reach out to us today to learn more about PATRAN slide sheets!
