Patient Safety

Protecting Our Patients

We take great steps toward preventing medical errors and making the hospital as safe as possible for our patients by implementing The Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals. We are also working with statewide organizations to ensure and improve patient safety.

Pilot Program to Avoid Operating Room Errors

We are part of a voluntary statewide pilot program to bring surgical checklists into every operating room. Every member of the surgical team goes through a checklist before, during and after every operation.

Working to Eliminate Hospital-Acquired Infections

We are working to wipe out infections that people acquire when they are in the hospital. To reduce these infections, we are sharing our data with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC)
