Thibodaux Regional Health System was recently named one of three recipients
of the 2018 Safety Star Award. The Safety Star Award is presented by the
Louisiana Hospital Association (LHA) Trust Funds to healthcare facilities
that have successfully implemented processes or developed innovative ideas
that improve patient safety.
Thibodaux Regional received the Safety Star Award for its patient safety
initiative, “Fall Prevention.” Through a redesigned process
utilizing new equipment and technology as well as improved and ongoing
patient identification and education, patient falls have steadily declined
to below the national standard.
“Patient safety is a top priority at Thibodaux Regional,” said
Greg Stock, CEO of Thibodaux Regional. “Receiving the LHA Safety
Star Award validates the continuous efforts of our staff to achieve excellence
and provide the highest quality, safest care for our patients.”
The LHA will recognize Thibodaux Regional at its annual conference this
summer. The LHA Trust Funds has served Louisiana healthcare facilities
and physicians with insurance solutions for more than three decades.
