Patient Safety and Quality
Patient Safety and Quality is a Team Effort
— and You're the Most Important Part of the Team
Patient safety is a top priority at Baptist Health Deaconess Madisonville. In fact, it’s just as important to us as our mission, vision, and values. It’s a foundational component of our commitment to patient-centered, compassionate care and your overall health and wellness. Ensuring appropriate medications for your condition, assisting with the tasks of daily living, communicating the reason for tests and procedures, asking your opinion – these are all aspects of our focus on your safety.
This kind of commitment calls for a team effort. Each person in our organization is involved in patient safety in some capacity, whether it’s through a morning safety huddle, a safe process for drug dispensing, or a pledge to good hand hygiene.
The single most important member of the team is you.
You and your loved ones are encouraged to ask questions, listen to answers, and participate as full members on the road to your recovery.
Information is key to patient safety. We take communicating the information you need very seriously so that you can be an equally informed member of your patient care team.
