LIFT Program

Mercy Health has partnered with ARJO/Diligent to implement the LIFT (Living Injury Free Together) Program that was developed to reduce injuries experienced by employees who regularly lift and move patients. The program also increases the safety of residents and patients by reducing the chance for falls or slips during a move. Two differentiating components of the LIFT Program are the equipment and the extensive training for staff.


eShift is a web-based shift scheduling system that allows designated staff to view their schedules and sign-up for open shifts at any of our locations. eShift offers 24-hour access via the Internet and provides the staff with the flexibility to work around other priorities in their lives.

Professional Recognition Program (PRP)

The purpose of the Nursing Professional Recognition Program (PRP) is to showcase clinical nurses’ accomplishments in relation to our Professional Practice Model. The Nursing PRP provides an opportunity for professional development, recognition for performance, and enhanced quality of patient care. The Nursing PRP emphasizes excellence in patient care as patient centered care is the primary goal. 


The PRP is a structured system to provide clinical nurses’ career advancement while remaining in the clinical setting, providing direct patient care. It is used to recognize professional excellence and differentiates levels of nursing expertise and contribution. The purpose of the clinical ladder is to:
  • Enhance, recognize and reward professional excellence among clinical nurses
  • Retain clinical nurses in direct patient care positions
  • Enhance clinical nurse employee satisfaction
  • Promote the Promise and Mission throughout Mercy Health System
  • Enhance nursing care by recognizing and utilizing nursing expertise in the care of Mercy Health patients
