Allison Dodge, Nurse Administrator from Upstate University Hospital nominated all of the Safe Patient Handling coaches at Upstate Hospital, many of which attended the 10 Annual Safe Patient Handling Conference.  “We have a great group of staff coming to the conference, either for the first time, or have been  a couple of times.  I have so many  wonderful coaches to nominate I don't know where to start, but have to say all of them in their own way go above and beyond for staff and patient safety!!  We all face challenges every day, but as a group we keep working together to get a task completed or at least come up with the best solution at that time. I can say in this role the SPH coaches are my ears and eyes of the hospital and carry the team spirit even when I am not here. Everyone comes with passion, new ideas, and growing opportunities to keep this program going.  We can only continue to grow as a team!
