American Association for Safe Patient Handling & MovementUpdate: The comment period for the AASPHM Draft Healthcare Recipient Sling and Lift Hanger Bar Compatibility Guidelines is now closed.

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 are lifted, moved and mobilized.

The publication date for the completed Healthcare Recipient Sling and Lift Hanger Bar Guidelines will be posted on this website in late Fall 2015.

The Guidelines have been developed by the AASPHM Sling Safety committee. Click here for more information about the work of the AASPHM sling safety committee.
