The Ohio Patient Safety Institute (OPSI) announced today that Marietta Memorial Hospital is a finalist in their second annual Best Practice Award, which honors a health care organization for implementing the most innovative, evidence-based patient safety practice in the state. The announcement coincides with Patient Safety Week, a national education and awareness-building campaign for improving patient safety at the local level.
Created by OPSIís Board of Trustees, the Best Practice Award recognizes a program that has demonstrated a focus on improving patient safety in a health care setting, while incorporating regional and national patient safety benchmarks and remaining unique to the Ohio health care market.
Twenty-nine hospitals submitted best practices programs. Marietta Memorial Hospital was recognized as a finalist for their hospital-wide initiative to reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections.
