Wednesday, January 23, 2013
Grady General Hospital recently placed second among hospitals under 100 beds in Georgia for Quality and Patient Safety. This is the second year Grady General has placed in this category, marking an improvement from third to second place. The award is presented each year by the Partnership for Health and Accountability, a branch of the Georgia Hospital Association that focuses on providing guidance to healthcare organizations in the area of patient safety.
“Commitment to patient safety is a top priority,” said Crystal Ramm, director of nursing at Grady General. “I am proud of our nurses for going above and beyond in caring for our patients.”
The hospital was recognized in January at the Georgia Hospital Association’s Quality and Patient Safety Summit in Greensboro. The conference was attended by representatives from hospitals of various sizes across the state. At the conference, representatives from Grady General provided a storyboard illustrating tips for improving quality of care and patient safety that was displayed both days during the meetings.
“I am very proud of the work of our frontline staff on a day-to-day basis,” stated LaDon Toole, administrator at Grady General. “This award is given to hospitals that set the standard in providing quality care to patients in a safe environment.”
