"I have been involved in Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facility Administration for over 30 years. I LOVE your website- the info is easy to use, and comprehensive. I typically write all of my own policies, procedures, forms etc. but since finding and joining Providers Web...I have so much more time to Direct our Operations....We have 7 licensed Homes for the Aged, Assisted Living Homes in the state of Michigan - a total of +/- 700 older persons, many with diagnoses of dementia. Just wanted to say thank you for making this information available, at such a reasonable cost!"

Hospital Patient and Health Care Worker Injury Protection Act. California

The new law amends the California Occupational Safety and
Health Act of 1973 to require an employer to maintain a safe patient
handling policy, as defined, for patient care units, and to provide
trained lift teams, as defined, or staff trained in safe lifting
techniques in each general acute care hospital, except for specified
hospitals. The safe patient handling policy would require the
replacement of manual lifting and transferring of patients with
powered patient transfer devices, lifting devices, or lift teams, as
specified. As part of the injury and illness prevention programs
required by existing regulations, employers would be required to
adopt a patient protection and health care worker back and
musculoskeletal injury prevention plan, which shall include a safe
patient handling policy component, as specified, to protect patients
and health care workers, as defined, in health care facilities.
