Patient Safety and Quality Improvement

Hospitalists at Strong Memorial Hospital are actively involved in processes to improve the safety and quality of care we provide our patients. Hospitalists lead and collaborate on initiatives to prevent hospital-acquired infections, delirium, falls, and readmissions, while improving pain control, geriatric care, and the overall patient experience. Hospitalist initiatives also target specific conditions, such as diabetes, pneumonia, and heart failure, and integrate methods to help our patients quit smoking.
