For more than a decade, the American Nurses Association (ANA) has been leading the fight on behalf of registered nurses, health care workers and patients to eliminate manual patient handling. The nation – now facing a serious nursing shortage – can no longer afford to lose the nurses who leave the profession annually due to musculoskeletal injuries and pain.
ANA will continue to be actively engaged on Capitol Hill representing the interests of America's 3.1 million registered nurses. However, members of Congress need to hear from YOU! Join the fight for safe patient handling by becoming a member of ANA's Safe Patient Handling Team.
