Conceptualization & Invention
United States Veterans Administration.
Director of Safe Patient Handling and 28 year veteran of the United States Navy Corps, retiring with the rank of Commander; Joined the VA San Diego Healthcare System in April 2009 and served as the Safe Patient Handling Facilitator for Nursing Service; Holds Degree in Nursing from the University of Louisiana and a Masters Degree in Business and Technology from the University of Phoenix.
The idea was conceptualized by this VA nurse with over 30 years experience in the OR. As he and his fellow nurses conducted more surgeries in the OR, they started sustaining back injuries and micro-fractures causing musculoskeletal disorder from manual lifting, transferring, and repositioning of patients.
With awareness to Safe Patient Handling Management, and injury prevention becoming more prominent and no solution in sight to limit the manual lifting of no more than 35 lbs. in the OR; this VA Nurse introduced the idea to bring STERILE mechanical FLOOR based, OVERHEAD mobile or stationary OVERHEAD lifts into the OR by utilizing a Drape in order to maintain the sterile environment. This is when the Sterile-Lift Kit was born, creating a way to LEAVE THE HEAVY LIFTING
TO THE MACHINES!

Eliminates Manual Lifting
Floor Based and Overhead
The two United States Veterans Administration patented products enable the use of most floor-based lifts to support the weight of patients during limb prep and surgical procedures rather than manual lifting by medical providers. The drapes may be used in other settings to provide superior coverage of equipment.
For instance, covering lift units for storage , portable X-ray machines or quick response to patients in need in non-sterile settings. Burn units have also shown interest. in this usage.
Overhead fixed or Overhead mobile
The overhead draping of the lift along with the sling allow the surgical team to utilize overhead lifts in the OR for many surgeries in a controlled and safe manner. Using a drape and full body sling, a patient can be repositioned with ease. NIOSH, OSHA and SPHM support the implementation of this system.
