We provide perfect patient care as evidence by meeting core measures in all expected areas such as Sepsis, CVA and VTE.  Our standards for concurrently monitoring and high accountability are the basis for our good patient outcomes.  Providing best-practice and quality care for reducing hospital acquired infections, such as CDIFF, CLABSI & CAUTIs is a major priority for all care givers. Striving to improve fall rates, mortalities and readmissions is also a continual focus for performance improvement here at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital.

Daily Quality Nursing Huddle: Twice a day the quality facilitator and nurse manager huddle at the nurse’s station with staff to review safety concerns, patient safety list and observations.


We utilize Team STEPPS – a teamwork system designed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality that focuses on improving patient safety through  communication and collaboration among caregivers.

Team STEPPS focuses on briefings, huddles, and debriefings and encourages nurses to speak up and be an active participant in improving patient quality and safety.
