This class, taught by physical therapy staff, covers safe patient mobilization techniques (repositioning, transfers, etc.) and a hands-on introduction to the use of lift equipment. Each participant will have the opportunity to practice techniques being taught.
The class is mandatory for all newly hired patient care employees and is also intended for employees who have not previously taken a safe patient mobilization training class at Sharp Chula Vista.
Employees who have attended this class before may enroll for the annual refresher course at Safe Patient Mobilization Refresher Class for SCVMC Employees.
