The American Nurses Association (ANA) announced the launch of a new program at the 9th Annual Safe Patient Handling and Movement Conference that will recognize healthcare facilities for implementing a safe patient handling program to prevent debilitating injuries nurses frequently sustain from lifting, repositioning and moving patients.

ANA’s Handle with Care Recognition Program™ will grant recognition to healthcare facilities that have had a safe patient handling program in place for at least three years and meet stringent assessment, planning, policy and training criteria
