Patient Lifts Raise the Bar on Safety
Posted on Jun 11, 2013 in New Hospital
Mills-Peninsula Medical Center was designed from the ground up with patient safety in mind. Nearly every patient room in the Burlingame medical center features an automated ceiling lift that helps patients feel comfortable and secure when they are being moved.
The patient lifts also help protect health care workers by preventing injuries. Jim Schweikhard, regional health and safety director, shows how the lifts work.
