2018 MEMIC Safety Awards

MEMIC honors Kingsway Arms Nursing Center for outstanding workplace safety

Out of more than 21,000 policyholders, only eight received an award for workplace safety in 2018 from MEMIC. Kingsway Arms Nursing Center is a family-operated senior residential community that has made tremendous safe patient handling improvements with the goal of achieving a zero injury workplace. “Before we can have patient safety, we have to have employee safety,” said Registered Nurse Priya Wheeler. “Before they do anything, they gather our thoughts before they implement something, and I really like that because it shows our voice is being heard.” CEO Michael McPartlon says that Kingsway has really focused on the prevention piece of workplace safety and “we were happy that we found MEMIC and MEMIC found us, together it’s been a good partnership.”
