While we have made very significant investments in and progress toward reducing errors in hospital care, patient safety continues to be a major focus for the hospitals of HCA East Florida.
In addition to our existing initiatives, efforts are now underway in:
- preventing blood clots in patient's legs (a serious complication after surgery)
- enhancing timeliness in emergency care
- assuring competence through training programs for staff and credentialing processes for physicians
It is our hope that our proactive efforts will improve the standard of care in the communities we serve and raise the bar on patient safety for the nation. View the Patient Safety Goals of our hospitals.
