The goals of SPHM are to reduce caregiver injuries and improve patient care. To learn more, visit our Hillrom STAMP web page.
Ten states have enacted Safe Patient Handling and Mobility (SPHM) laws, and they vary considerably. There are no all-encompassing federal laws or regulations that guide the practice of patient handling.
Safe Patient Handling & Mobility is an industry coined term/phrase referring to policies and programs that enable caregivers to move their patients in a way that does not cause injury and “mobility” to capitalize on the emerging evidence-based concept of early mobility for the patient as an end goal.
