CCMH to celebrate patient safety week

It's OK
To Ask Questions

Charles Cole Memorial Hospital is joining with hospitals across the nation to celebrate National Patient Safety Awareness Week, March 7 through 13, to help raise awareness of patient safety and to strengthen patient/family and healthcare provider relationships.

“This year’s theme, “Let’s Talk, Healthy Conversations for Safer Healthcare,” focuses on the patient as a very important member of the healthcare team.

The celebration of National Patient Safety Awareness Week helps raise this awareness for staff and for patients, to let everyone know is okay to ask questions. It also focuses on the importance of effective communication between the patient, among healthcare providers, and with the community.

We celebrate this week to show our commitment to safe, quality, and patient-centered care at Charles Cole,” said Lucy Lajcsak, patient safety and compliance officer at CCMH.

A variety of patient safety exhibits will be displayed in the Irwin Medical Arts Center this week, integrating the theme of communication.

CCMH will be spotlighting adherence to the National Patient Safety Goals and the patient’s role in safety; the hospital’s upcoming participation in simulation training, a technique gaining momentum in healthcare that simulates real life, unpredictable or unusual medical emergencies and builds teamwork and communication skills critical in emergent situations; the telemonitor program where home care nurses can remotely monitor and communicate with patients; and the patient-centered medical home, which facilitates partnerships and coordination of care between patients and families and their providers.

Other exhibits will focus on infection protection, emergency department care, emergency preparedness and restorative nursing in the long term care facility.
