Memorial Minute - August 20, 2019
August 20, 2019
Memorial has been notified that they are among the top 5 performers in Acute Care hospitals in the New Mexico Hospital Association Hospital Improvement Innovation Network (HIIN) Program. HIIN is a quality and patient safety initiative funded by the Centers for Medicare/Medicaid (CMS). Criteria for awardees were based on goals set by CMS and the American Hospital Association over the past 12 months (April 2018-March 2019). Hospitals were chosen based on a point system for their top 10 performing metrics. Memorial is dedicated to reducing harms that are measured by CMS, including the patient’s length of stay, patient falls, and hospital-acquired conditions such as pneumonia, sepsis, and urinary tract infections. We congratulate our entire Memorial Team for this outstanding achievement and well-deserved recognition!
