Doctor's Community Hospital's Emergency Department Team hosted the first Doctors Community Hospital Patient Safety Day on March 17th, 2015. Organized by Drs. Satyam Vashi and Puneet Chopra, this important initiative was spearheaded to highlight our core values and highlight our patient safety initiatives at DCH. We highlighted the best ways to maximize communication and teamwork to create a safer environment with direct actions that will continue to bring positive changes to DCH. We are working closely with all stakeholders including the medical staff, nursing, risk management and pharmacy.
We had excellent discussion including a poster presentation and speakers highlighted by Dr. Drew Fuller, EMA's strategic coordinator for Patient Safety, and Alan Price, USAF, Ret., who gave our keynote address.
This event represents an important stepping stone for the DCH ED Team and EMA in its efforts in becoming a driving force at Doctors Community Hospital and our community.
