Back injuries rank second among all causes of occupational injuries for all occupations. Nursing remains a very physically demanding profession. These combined statements contain the ingredients for a dangerous nursing career when considering the size and weight of the equipment transported multiple times per day. PHS West, Inc. displayed solutions to these issues while at the ANNA National Symposium!
At PHS West, Inc. we take ergonomics very seriously. PHS West, Inc. attended this year’s (2017) American Nephrology Nurses Association National Symposium in Washington D.C. to educate those in attendance about what we have to offer here! Our motorized dialysis carts provide the ergonomic pleasure to nephrology nurses across the United States. To attend the ANNA National Symposium is to learn and network with those striving to provide and consume the best practices in the field of nephrology. PHS West, Inc. is so grateful to be a part of such an event.
While the focus of most of the workshops and programs is dialysis processes and procedures, some focused on the nurses well-being. This is where PHS West, Inc. comes in. An example of a meeting that touched on the struggles of each nephrology nurse in a highly demanding position was “Cascade of Changes – A Manager’s Journey.”
Each year, PHS West, Inc. finds this national symposium to be beneficial and teaching in the field of nephrology. We continue to learn more about the demands of the field and provide solutions to your acute dialysis needs. While this year’s ANNA National Symposium has just passed, we cannot wait until the symposium next year in Las Vegas, NV. We plan to attend so keep checking back to see where our booth will be, what we will be bringing along, informative pieces concerning our motorized dialysis carts, and so much more. We appreciate you stopping by our booth and hope to see you again next year!
PHS West, Inc. will also be attending the Nephrology Nursing Practice, Management, & Leadership Conference in Miami this fall as well! We hope to see you there!
