DYNAMIC MEDICAL SYSTEMS AND STANFORD MEDICAL CENTER 'S SAFE PATIENT HANDLING PROGRAM DELIVERS BETTER THAN EXPECTED OUTCOMES

Press releases may be edited for formatting or style
LOS ANGELES, California - Dynamic Medical Systems, Inc. showcased the positive outcomes that can be created by implementing a successful safe patient handling initiative at the 2nd Annual Safe Patient Handling show in San Diego. "We congratulate Stanford University Medical Center for the numerous awards they have won over the past year for their Safe Patient Handling program. We are proud to be Stanford's partner of choice and look forward to continuing our strategic partnership," said Dave Robertson, CEO of Dynamic Medical Systems.

The need for patient-lifting equipment has grown in recent years as the population continues to increase in weight. "The Safe Patient Handing program we implemented at Stanford has been instrumental in increasing employee satisfaction and reducing workers compensation costs by hundreds of thousands of dollars. We have also seen a far greater reduction related to patient falls and an even larger increase in patient satisfaction, which has been attributed to the Safe Patient Handling program," said Ed Hall, MS, CSP, Senior Director of Risk Management Controls & Education, Stanford University Medical Center.

Through their partnership with Stanford University, Dynamic Medical has seen better than expected safe patient handling outcomes in areas not previously identified as possible major success factors. Stanford recently produced a white paper on the subject. "Although we expected the findings of Stanford's research to show the greater reduction in patient falls and nurse injuries, we were pleasantly surprised by other significantly positive findings such as the reduction in staff turnover," said Greg Apostolou, President, Dynamic Medical. "It proves that our Total Patient Safety & Care Solutions offer even greater benefits that can truly be measured."

"Dynamic Medical is at the forefront of change sweeping the healthcare industry," continued Mr. Robertson. Hospitals across the country are increasingly realizing that manually lifting patients is a heightened risk to both the patient and hospital staff. Dynamic offers extensive safe patient handling solutions that include advanced education and training to help mitigate that risk. "We implement programs for our customers that actually pay for themselves in just a few years but offer significant savings over three times as long. A properly managed safe patient handling initiative can actually turn into an annuity of savings in direct and indirect costs. The business and clinical case is staggering--even I was surprised," stated Mr. Robertson.
