American Association for Safe Patient Handling & MovementAASPHM publishes the Healthcare Recipient Sling and Lift Hanger Bar Compatibility Guidelines

The American Association for Safe Patient Handling and Movement (AASPHM) has developed the Healthcare Recipient Sling and Lift Hanger Bar Compatibility Guidelines in order to provide information and recommendations about the compatibility of healthcare recipient slings and lift hanger bars. The Guidelines will assist healthcare facilities and organizations, healthcare workers, sling and lift manufacturers, and retailers to facilitate safe use of slings and lift hanger bars in any setting where healthcare recipients (i.e., patients/residents) are lifted, moved and mobilized.
