Redmond Regional Medical Center’s Nursing Leadership Team provides interactive education program to teach best practices for a variety of quality-care and patient-safety initiatives.
At Redmond, quality patient care is always a top priority. By hosting this interactive learning event - Safety World - hospital leadership demonstrated their commitment to staff education and high quality patient care. Care teams are highly engaged in not only learning, but also in keeping patient safety and quality care at the forefront of their practice. Through this ongoing emphasis on quality patient care, patient safety, and staff education, Redmond has been nationally recognized for the care provided to their patients.
Most recently, hospitalcompare.gov published Redmond’s hospital wide readmission rate as well as the readmission rates for COPD, Heart Attack, Heart Failure, Pneumonia, and Stroke are all below the national benchmark. Additionally, the site published Redmond’s patient satisfaction scores for “definitely recommend this hospital” are also above the national average.
Redmond’s Nursing Leadership pulled together leaders from across all hospital departments to participate in this educational program. Hospital leaders fostered maximum staff engagement through the development of creatively themed stations. Each station was designed to convey a message of education for staff on most recent updates and best practices for quality patient care. The educational stations also emphasized how every staff member can directly impact patient safety and quality care.
Though the use of interactive education, staff members demonstrate their mastery of the information and immediately implement these learned best practices to positively impact the care they provide to patients every day.
