Pandora, Ohio -
Pandora's Hilty Home is the most recent recipient of a safety grant from the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation. Ohio's BWC presented the Hilty Home with a check totaling nearly $39,600. The grant is the result of a three to one match to bring eight ceiling lifts to the facility, helping at least 16 residents and the nurses that care for them. The lifts stop employees from having to lift patients, twist, turn and bend, in turn helping to lower on the job injury accidents. Hilty estimates, just one severe back injury requiring surgery, could exceed the cost of the eight new lifts.
