The hospital received the award — which was presented at the 11th annual What’s Right in Health Care conference — for their exemplary “Room was always clean” results on the HCAHPS patient survey.
Studer Group® gives its Excellence in Patient Care awards to select partners based on various categories. Wabash County Hospital was selected for their HCAHPS composite results for 3Q11-2Q12 for the “room cleanliness” composite. Wabash County Hospital’s outstanding results ranked them among the highest from a database of more than 850 organizations coached by Studer Group.
“Cleanliness is more than an aesthetic at Wabash County Hospital,” said Studer Group Coach Kris Ann Piazza. “It is about safety and the team in Housekeeping being empowered to positively impact patient outcomes by establishing a sanitized environment that reduces the risk of infection. Every employee plays a role in the patient experience, and this award clearly demonstrates that Housekeeping staff and leaders have committed to making a difference for those they serve!”
