Equipment and Environmental
Needs Assessment
AGENDA:
 Patient/Resident Handling Equipment
and Devices
 Equipment Needs Assessment
 Facility Environment Assessment
 Hands-on Demonstrations of Equipment
Equipment, Environmental and
Organizational Needs Assessment
OBJECTIVES:
SPH/SRH Team participants will be able to understand…
 What equipment and devices are available to eliminate high-risk
patient/resident manual handling tasks
 How to assess your equipment needs and match your purchases
to your census
 How to assess your facility environment
 How to assess your organizational capacity to achieve “buy-in”
 How to use SPH/SRH Equipment
Section 1
Equipment
 Engineering Control Strategies
 Mechanical Lifts

Section 1: Equipment
WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?
 What’s this
manual lift called?
 What’s the risk to
the worker?
patient/resident?
 How could we
eliminate the risk?
Section 1: Equipment
ENGINEERING CONTROL STRATEGIES
The Preferred Control Method:
 Eliminate the need to do the
hazardous activity
 Redesign the activity to reduce
the hazard: equipment and other
assists

Section 2: Equipment Needs Assessments
PURCHASING EQUIPMENT
Questions:
 Have you made a big purchase in your life recently?
 What were you looking for?
 How did you decide to choose what you did?
 Does anyone regret his/her purchase? Why?
 How might your experience apply to the equipment
you purchase?
Section 2: Equipment Needs Assessments
PURCHASING EQUIPMENT:
HOLD AN EQUIPMENT FAIR
 Contact vendor references
 Invite a few vendors
 Involve direct care
staff/patients/residents
 Evaluate, select and pilot use of
equipment
Section 2: Equipment Needs Assessments
PURCHASING EQUIPMENT:
SELECTION CRITERIA
 Appropriate to Task
 Fits in Facility Environment
 Safe for Patient/Resident Caregiver
 Easily Kept Clean
 Comfortable for Patient/Resident
 Cost-Effective
 Easy to Understand
 Time-Efficient (not too many steps)
Section 2: Equipment Needs Assessments
PURCHASING EQUIPMENT:
KEY VENDOR QUESTIONS
 Reliability: established in our state?
 Customer Service: repair/replacement?
Turnaround time?
 Training: initial and periodic? All shifts?
 Maintenance: length of battery charge?
Battery life span? Vendor maintenance?
 Vendor’s Responsibilities?
Section 2: Equipment Needs Assessments
PURCHASING EQUIPMENT:
VENDOR QUESTIONS
 Equipment Functionality?
 Infection Control?
 Bariatric Equipment?
 Slings?
 Ceiling Lifts?
 Equipment Product Support?
Section 2: Equipment Needs Assessments
PREVENTIVE EQUIPMENT MAINTENANCE
Your SPH/SRH Ergo Team should ensure
procedures are developed to:
 Log and tag equipment when it enters the building
 Use the log and tags to monitor the equipment
 Develop a process to get the repaired equipment
on the floor quickly
 48 hours is a good turnaround time
 Maintain a log book of when the equipment was
broken and returned
