Atlas Lift Tech Improves Quality of Care, Reduces Injury Risk for Patients and Staff 
For CNOs, directors of quality improvement, performance improvement, and human resources 

Atlas Lift Tech’s approach to safe patient handling and mobility adapts to the needs of each client. Atlas mobility coaches, integrated in facilities up to 24 hours a day, are available on a scheduled or emergent basis through continuous rounding on the units and in unit/bedside training.  

COVID-19 challenges facilities with high acuity patients who have respiratory illness. Atlas’s staff are an extension of the hospital’s care team, assisting with proning, mobilizing, and preventing pressure injuries, extended length of stay, and worker injury. Proning can provide up to 15% more lung volume for COVID-19 patients (See Atlas Lift Tech-sponsored Mobility is Medicine YouTube channel for more information on proning.) 

Atlas mobility coaches embrace each hospital’s policies and procedures. They provide training and transport services using the client’s safe patient handling and mobility technology. They bring the experience of thousands of patient turns, boosts, re-positions and prones to their coaching, training, and assistance with your clinical staff at the bedside. The Atlas Lift Tech program reduces employee injury and the consequences of patient immobility.
