Continuing Care Hospital (CCH) at CHI Saint Joseph Health, Lexington, KY, was awarded the 2019 Kentucky Hospital Association (KHA) Quality Award for its work in Safe Patient Handling Movement. The hospital was recognized May 10 at the 90th Annual KHA Convention in Lexington.

CCH is a 25-bed long-term acute care hospital located inside Saint Joseph Hospital in Lexington. The Safe Patient Handling Movement program at CCH uses assistive devices to ensure patients can be mobilized without harm and hospital employees avoid performing high-risk manual patient handling tasks.

"We’re honored to be recognized by KHA for our work to ensure safe transfer of our patients," said Bob Desotelle, president of Continuing Care Hospital. "Patient safety is of utmost importance and we recognize that keeping staff from overexerting themselves is key to safe patient handling."
