Marshall Medical Centers has earned a place on the list of “100 SafeCare” hospitals in the country delivering the finest level of care.
Marshall Medical Centers was recognized for healthcare quality in the group of hospitals between 100-400 beds for the “best processes of care, best outcomes of care and best efficacy of care.”
“If all U.S. hospitals attained the 100 SafeCare Hospitals level, there would be improvement in the more than 400,000 hospital deaths and close to 5.1 million preventable complications that occur each year,” stated the group in announcing the achievement.
The SafeCare Group analyzed hospital data to make the 2014-15 ratings. Areas looked at included:
Lowest mortality rates
Lowest complication rates in medical and surgical care
Lowest in-hospital medical and surgical infection rates
Highest medical and surgical processes of care
Highest patient satisfaction scores
Only the 100 hospitals between 100-400 beds with the highest scores made the 100 SafeCare Hospitals list, according to the announcement.
“This distinction is one that Marshall Medical receives with pride because it was borne out of hard work,” said Gary Gore, CEO of Marshall Medical Centers. “Our staffs take very seriously the extensive requirements that make up the standard of quality patient care. They deserve national recognition like this.”
The SafeCare Group was founded in 2010 to help hospitals excel in the areas of patient safety, quality and efficiency. The SafeCare Group software helps hospitals comply with regulatory standards. It has published a 12-point surgical checklist as well as several checklists to avoid hospital falls and bedsores.
