2018 Safety Den Winners

June 1, 2018

Continuing Care Category | Revera Living

Revera’s low-tech safety idea is the creation of a ‘luggage tag’ style ID for a resident’s walker or wheelchair. One side of the letter-size sheet has a visual cue for the resident—a picture from their youth, one of a loved one, or a prominent memory, with a brief description on the bottom. The image serves as a visual distraction for the resident during stress. The tag is laminated, primarily for infection control purposes, and the reverse side has the resident’s name and the word “Likes.” In the white space below, using a dry-erase pen, staff can provide tips on strategies that have worked for distraction and re-direction. 

Commercial Category | Handicare

Handicare’s EvaDrive allows residents and clients to be transferred with a gentle push of the fingertips. Effortlessly maneuver through obstacles in care facilities with ease. The EvaDrive is an intuitive motorized mobile lift requiring very little force. This breakthrough lifting aid aims to reduce the risk of injury caregivers face when manually handling patients during transfers.
