How We Keep Patients Safe
- Establish patient safety as a visible commitment to our "putting patients first" philosophy
- Move from blaming people to improving processes
- Improve use of technology to prevent and detect error
- Use data to identify and measure improvements
We are committed to using the most advanced technologies and common-sense strategies to make sure you are receiving the highest level of care.
With increased national awareness and concern about post-operation infections, we can understand why you may be concerned about Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, more commonly known as MRSA, and other post-surgery infections. We want you to know our doctors and hospital staff share your concern. Our surgical teams do everything in their power to prevent post-surgery infections.
Thankfully, there has been a steady decrease in healthcare-associated infections like MRSA, according to the CDC. HCA is global leader in developing strategies to prevent infections and every hospital strictly follows the best surgical practices to ensure patient safety. When you are a guest at one of our hospitals, you can take comfort in knowing you are in good hands.
