FirstLight Health System recognized for safety

FirstLight Health System was recognized by the Minnesota Hospital Association for completing a three-year patient safety initiative meant to reducing the number of incidents related to the top 10 hospital-acquired conditions: falls that result in an injury, pressure ulcers, non-emergency early elective deliveries, preventable re-admissions, surgical site infections, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, ventilator associated pneumonia, and central line-associated bloodstream infections. “FirstLight Health System is helping to further strengthen patient safety in Minnesota and contributing to the state’s well-deserved reputation for high quality, patient-centered health care,” said Minnesota Hospital Association President Lawrence Massa.
