Thibodaux Regional Receives Safety Star Award

Thibodaux Regional Medical Center 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.
