Hillrom recognises the change in increasing demands on our Heathcare professionals, due to stretched staffing levels and the increasing number of patients entering the hospital with more complex health conditions. How can we do more with less, but at the same time increasing the safety of healthcare professionals and ensuring our patients are moved and mobilised appropriately to reduce the risks of deconditioning and help to accelerate their recovery.
This Hillrom Safe Patient Handling and Mobility masterclass is designed and delivered by industry experts within the field of Ergonomics & Moving and Handling, to share insights on how we can accelerate patient recovery with evidenced based mobility assessments, the role assistive technology can plan within the recovery of patients but also share how assistive technology can help to increase efficiencies and safety of our workforce across the hospital.
