Caregiver Health strives to bolster the fundamental culture of safety within the INTEGRIS Health System, with the ultimate goal of ensuring zero harm to caregivers. 

Safe Patient Handling Safe patient handling refers to the use of ergonomic principles, equipment, and techniques to ensure the safe movement and transfer of patients in healthcare settings. It involves strategies to minimize the risk of injury for both patients and caregivers during tasks such as lifting, transferring, and repositioning patients.

Sharps Safety Activation 
Sharps safety activation involves measures to prevent accidental needlestick injuries and exposure to bloodborne pathogens among healthcare workers and other individuals who may come into contact with sharp objects, such as needles, scalpels, and syringes. This may include the use of safety-engineered sharps devices, proper disposal containers, training programs, and adherence to established guidelines and regulations to minimize the risk of sharps-related injuries and infections.

Blood Pathogen Splash Events Blood pathogen splash events, also known as bloodborne pathogen splash exposures, occur when blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) come into contact with mucous membranes (such as the eyes, nose, mouth) or non-intact skin of healthcare workers or individuals in a healthcare setting. These events typically involve splashes, sprays, or splatters of blood or OPIM that can occur during medical procedures, such as drawing blood, inserting IV lines, or performing surgeries. In healthcare settings, it's crucial to promptly address blood pathogen splash events by thoroughly washing the affected area with soap and water and following established protocols for reporting and managing exposures to bloodborne pathogens.
