CCMH Receives Awards from Missouri Hospital Association
July 25, 2018
CARROLLTON, Mo. – In June, Carroll County Memorial Hospital was recognized by the Missouri Hospital Association for outstanding measures to improve and sustain patient safety.
CCMH joined the MHA’s Hospital Improvement Innovation Network (HIIN) program, which the journey leading up to this began two years ago, this fall. As a member of the HIIN program, CCMH monitors adverse drug events, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, central line-associated blood stream infections, C. difficile, falls, methicillin-resistance staphylococcus aureus, pressure ulcers, readmissions and workplace violence.
MHA awarded CCMH with the “Top 10 Greatest Percentage of Improvement Award” and “Most Zero Harm Measures Award.”
CCMH was recognized for being a top 10 percent, HIIN-participating hospital and achieving the greatest percentage of improvement, based on maintaining a cumulative measure rate below four and achieving reductions of 20 percent or greater in the topic areas of observation.
CCMH has also achieved and sustained a zero rate of harm in the same areas of data collection.
“As CCMH continues to do well in the areas monitored, the hospital receives stipends for employee education to provide training and resources,” said Cindy Gilman, CCMH Director of Quality and HIIN project lead.
