OHA HIIN Hospitals Recognized for Mentor Status Eligibility




The Ohio Hospital Association and Risk Control 360° today recognized Berger Health System, Mount Carmel Health System, ProMedica, Salem Regional Hospital and Southern Ohio Medical Center with certificates of Mentor Status Eligibility in one of four Hospital Improvement Innovation Network focus areas.
The four focus areas are slips, trips, falls; workplace violence; patient handling; and High Reliability Organization/Integration of Worker and Patient Safety. Mentor Status nominees are meeting many of the best practices and have one of the lowest frequency rates in that area. 
OHA is one of 16 organizations nationally chosen to lead a HIIN through a federal grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. OHA and participating members are working to reduce health care-acquired conditions and preventable readmissions in Ohio.
