Description

By introducing "handling care" and the idea of "zero carrying", the Paris Saint-Joseph Hospital Group, located in the 14th arrondissement of Paris, is spearheading a cultural upheaval in practices. The approach consists, after assessing the patient's abilities, of accompanying him or her in safety by encouraging autonomy, without constraint for the carer.

En introduisant le « soin de manutention » et l’idée de « zéro portage », le Groupe hospitalier Paris Saint-Joseph, situé dans le XIVe arrondissement de Paris, est le fer de lance d’un bouleversement culturel des pratiques. L’approche consiste, après évaluation des capacités du malade, à l’accompagner en sécurité en favorisant son autonomie, sans contrainte pour le soignant.
