Safe Patient Mobilization Refresher Class for SCVMC Employees
This annual refresher class is required for all Sharp Chula Vista employees whose work assignments include handling or mobilizing patients or who have sustained a work-related injury due to patient mobilizations.
The hands-on class, taught by physical therapy staff, reviews safe patient mobilization techniques (repositioning, transfers, etc.) and the use of lift equipment. Each participant will have the opportunity to practice techniques before getting signed off on their annual competency.
This is a refresher course and is not intended for newly hired employees or those who have not taken a safe patient mobilization class at Sharp Chula Vista before. Sessions specifically designated for new hires/students are available by registering at Safe Patient Mobilization Class for New SCVMC Employees.
