Health & Safety
Lee Health: A Healthy Work Environment
Safety – for both patients and employees — is a top priority at Lee Health. We've implemented systems like DILIGENT, a comprehensive minimal lift program, endorsed by the American Hospital Association. DILIGENT is a minimal lift environment that offers protection from back, shoulder, neck, and other injuries common in patient care today.
The program includes equipment, tools, and nursing policies for all patient activity levels to reduce manual lifting and the risk of injury.
Creating and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment is a responsibility we all share.
Lee Health employees should always:
- Promptly report accidents/incidents using the proper channels
- Correct or report safety hazards
- Use protective equipment
- Keep areas free of spills and insecure materials
