Hilton Head Regional Healthcare Hospitals Receive Safety Awards from SC Hospital AssociationNov 12, 2020
Hilton Head Regional Healthcare is proud to announce both system hospitals, Coastal Carolina Hospital and Hilton Head Hospital, have recently received multiple 2020 Zero Harm accolades from the South Carolina Hospital Association (SCHA).
“Receiving accolades like the Zero Harm Awards give us a unique opportunity to reflect and congratulate our team for their unwavering commitment to safety,” said Jeremy Clark, Hilton Head Regional Healthcare Market CEO.
“Now, perhaps more than any other time in recent history, the attention to thoughtful and detailed protocols and procedures for surgical safety is critical. We would like to thank the South Carolina Hospital Association for continuing to recognize the high quality of care being providing within our system and throughout our state.”
Since 2014, SCHA’s Zero Harm Awards have celebrated hospitals who have had extended harm-free stretches in major surgical areas like knee replacements, hip replacements, and abdominal hysterectomy or have gone months without a Central Line-Associated Blood Stream Infection (CLABSI) or Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA).
Coastal Carolina Hospital won awards for Surgical Site Infection (SSI) Knee Replacement, SSI Hip Replacement, SSI Abdominal Hysterectomy, MRSA, CLABSI ICU and CLABSI Medical Surgical Unit. Hilton Head Hospital won awards for MRSA, SSI Abdominal Hysterectomy, SSI Hip Replacement, CLABSI ICU, and CLABSI ACU. These accolades are a testament to the dedication of the hospitals’ clinical staff and the hospitals’ commitment to providing the highest quality of care.
