Since 1993, American Medical Equipment (AME) has been recognized as a leading provider of medical products and clinical services for patients care in Nursing Homes.

Nursing Facilities benefit from AME's specialty solutions: Wound Care & Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT), Bariatric, and Patient Safety. AME is driven by a pioneering spirit, constantly looking for the best medical innovations and then offering it affordable to customers. And we understand the importance of eliminating employee injury by providing the proper equipment for patient mobility.

The number and severity of injuries resulting from physical demands in nursing homes to workers -- and associated costs -- can be substantially reduced by having the proper equipment in place. Providing an alternative to manual resident lifting is the primary goal of the ergonomics process in the nursing home setting. OSHA recommends that manual lifting of residents be minimized in all cases and eliminated when feasible. OSHA further recommends that employers develop a process for systematically addressing ergonomics issues in their facilities, and incorporate this process into an overall program to recognize and prevent occupational safety and health hazards.

The procurement of equipment and the selection of an equipment supplier are important considerations when implementing solutions. Employers should establish close working relationships with equipment suppliers. Such working relationships help with obtaining training for employees, modifying the equipment for special circumstances, and procuring parts and service when needed. This is where AME strives to fulfill the demanding needs required for your employees.
