By offering clinical education and consulting services combined with the latest technology in assistive solutions we are helping facilities and caregivers address these areas of risk within their facilities.
Our mission is to reduce injuries and improve patient care outcomes through the products and services we provide.
“Reducing Risk and Improving Outcomes”
SPH Medical offers the broadest and most comprehensive safe patient handling equipment portfolio in the industry. This broad spectrum of solutions provides you with a single source for all your lifting, transferring, repositioning, bariatric, raising, and patient mobilization needs.
What we do
The SPH Medical approach to Patient Mobility is unique. Our focus is on delivering clinical evidence-based solutions that help reduce injuries and improve patient care outcomes. Our methodology mirrors that of the nursing process to provide optimal program outcomes.
It all begins with the assessment process and understanding where your facility is today and where the gaps may exist in your current patient care environment or Mobility Program. The “Risk Assessment” process reveals a lot about how patients and caregivers alike may be at risk of injury. Caregivers are at risk of MSD’s (Musculoskeletal Disorders) which are injuries caused by the high frequency of patient care tasks they perform. Heavy patients and awkward postures contribute to the risk of injury for caregivers. Patients are also at risk of falls, HAPU’s or Hospital Acquired Pressure Ulcers, and other patient handling related injuries.
