The purpose of this guide is to provide step-by-step instructions to assist long term care facilities in developing an effective and sustainable SRH program.

This guide is designed for use by those at long term care facilities such as skilled nursing homes, assisted living or residential care interested in transitioning their facility into a Facility of Choice for safe resident handling.

It is intended to be used by interdisciplinary SRH teams which should be composed of people from management, care giver staff, and ancillary departments such as engineering and environmental services.
