Patient Safety

Patient Safety and Quality Healthcare go hand in hand.  Reducing harm and preventable re-admissions are key priorities in our hospitals today.

We are helping Mississippi hospitals prioritize patient safety and quality in the care delivered. Some of the topics hospitals are working on include:

  • Adverse drug events
  • Catheter-associated urinary tract infections
  • Central line associated blood stream infections Injuries from falls or immobility
  • Obstetrical adverse events including Early Elective Deliveries
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Readmissions
  • Surgical site infections
  • Venous thromboembolism
  • Ventilator associated events Airway safety
  • Clostridium difficile including antibiotic stewardship
  • Failure to rescue
  • Hospital culture of safety to fully integrate patient and worker safety
  • Iatrogenic delirium
  • Severe sepsis and septic shock
  • Undue exposure to radiation

 Here you will find resources to create a Culture of Safety.
