Patient Safety

When you're in the hospital, you expect quality, safe care. And you should. But do you know what's going on behind-the-scenes to ensure that your care is as thorough as possible?

This interdisciplinary team focuses on matters such as fall prevention, proper patient identification, medication management, and various others. MidState is committed to improving patient safety through the implementation of several best-practice initiatives:

  • Fall Precautions
  • FAST Team
  • Medication Reconciliation
  • Rapid Response Team
  • Skin collaborative
  • "Time out" before surgery
