Congratulations to 5B in University Hospital, which was recently honored with another 365 Days of Safety Award!

The unit earned the distinction for going a full year without CLABSI, the second time the group has received the organization’s safety award since August. The unit’s first award was given for going 365 days without a CAUTI.

The 365 Days of Safety Award recognizes outstanding practice within a patient care unit, area, clinic or department which resulted in the avoidance of patient harm and health care-acquired conditions for 365 consecutive days. The award also demonstrates the sustainability of the associated patient safety practice.
