C&W 8E earns patient safety honor

March 14, 2017  //  FOUND IN: Our Employees

Congratulations to 8E in C&W, which recently received the organization’s highest honor for patient safety!

The unit was given the 365 Days of Safety Award for going 730 days without a CAUTI — becoming the first unit to earn the award in two consecutive years for the same condition — and for going 365 days without a pressure ulcer.

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.
