HCA Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center in Panama City, Florida

GCRMC plans to have several activities and projects during National Patient Safety Week 2017, in order to highlight the great strides we make in keeping patient safety at the forefront of every thing we do. Our plans will no doubt grow as the ideas continue to pour in, but currently we plan a "commitment to patient safety wall" where staff and providers sign a commitment to focus every patient encounter as an opportunity to promote, assess, advocate for and elicit safety in our organization. Additionally, we will be launching a patient safety video, narrated by our CNO. The intent of the video is to welcome our patients and their families to GCRMC and to highlight some key safety needs they may have during their stay with us and after discharge. We'll address such things as falls, hand washing, etc., and will explain how we as their hospital provider of choice in the community are working to keep them safe during their stay. We are fortunate to have CNS/CNL staff who are facilitating patient safety learning labs throughout the week to promote staff learning of safety considerations with acute illness (physiological considerations during hospitalization). We'll also have the usual "lunch and learns", table tents.
