The Challenge

A senior-living facility in the western US faced a “serious-level” citation from OSHA for the lack of a safe patient handling program and other violations. Lockton stepped in to help the facility implement the requirements outlined in the citation agreement with looming deadlines and impending financial penalties.

The Solution

Lockton not only guided the nursing provider through meeting the agreement requirements, but also implemented a comprehensive Safe Patient/Resident Mobility Program in just four months. The program included national safe patient handling and mobilizing standards, going above and beyond OSHA’s requirements, and setting the facility up for long-term success.

The Results

This solution enabled the client to not only meet the immediate requirements of the citation agreement, but during the next two years, created double-digit reductions in lost-time and restricted duty cases, as well as the total number of lost-time and restricted duty days. This created a safer and more productive work environment for the nurses, aides, and other care staff.
