Acute Care Hospital
This acute care hospital was experiencing a high frequency of claims, many of them resulting in lost time for their injured employees. Through a process of risk evaluation, hazard recognition surveys, meetings with the senior leadership team, and the implementation of a safe patient handling program, the organization’s loss experience steadily improved.
The loss control initiatives established with senior management have helped keep injury reduction efforts at the forefront. In the two most recent policy years, the frequency of injuries have decreased by two-thirds and lost time claims have decreased by nearly 80 percent.
