A Healthy Workplace

Safety, for both our patients and employees, is a top priority at Lee Health. To lower the risk of potential injuries, we created a system called DILIGENT. Fully endorsed by the American Hospital Association, DILIGENT is a comprehensive, minimal-lift program designed to protect our community from accidents that typically occur in patient-care environments. DILIGENT and its minimal-lift policy have helped our staff – and guests – avoid injuries that often result in long-term back, shoulder, and neck pain.

The safety and well-being of every person at Lee Health takes precedence above all else. With our daily protocols and the DILIGENT system, Lee Health always provides ‘A Healthy Workplace,’ always.

Creating and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment is a responsibility we all share.

The program includes equipment, tools, and nursing policies for all patient activity levels to reduce manual lifting and the risk of injury.

We hold each other accountable at Lee Health. Every employee, no matter the department, is expected to:

  • Promptly report accidents/incidents using the proper channels
  • Correct or report safety hazards
  • Use protective equipment
  • Keep areas free of spills and insecure materials
