CCMH Participates in MHA HIIN Program
December 29, 2017
CARROLLTON, Mo. – Carroll County Memorial Hospital is participating in the Missouri Hospital Association’s Hospital Improvement Innovation Network (HIIN) to improve patient safety.
“With the HIIN, we have continued to provide a safer environment for our patients by receiving guidance, tools and resources from MHA and by networking with other hospitals,” said Cindy Gilman, RN, Director of Quality.
Around 85 hospitals in Missouri participate in the HIIN program to gain access to educational opportunities and assistance from MHA without huge investments of money.
MHA has recognized CCMH as part of the “Zero Heroes” Club by achieving and/or sustaining a zero rate of harm and is in the top 10 percent of HIIN-participating hospitals.
This month, CCMH participated in a site visit from Amanda Keiholz, HIIN program manager. The visit was designed to focus on hospital's performance in the project to-date and assist in prioritizing opportunities to net further quality improvement. Representing CCMH in this visit were Cindy Gilman, RN, HIIN lead and Director of Quality; Tammy Crawford, LPN, HIIN lead and Infection Control and Employee Education; and Emily Frazier, RN, Director of Acute Care.
