Protecting staff from preventable injuries
Work-related injuries among nurses and caregivers is a growing problem around the world.
This means that healthcare resources are being put under massive pressure, as a decreasing number of nurses and caregivers look after an increasing number of elderly, sick and infirm.
In many countries staff shortages are causing chronic problems, so it is vital to provide nurses and caregivers with a working environment that is as safe and hygienic as possible. Not only will this keep staff safe and secure in their chosen profession, it will also offer many benefits to patients and residents alike through a strong focus on their comfort and care.
