The CALNOC Performance Excellence Award recognizes hospitals for preventing harm to patients

Our patients deserve the highest quality care and that is why each day we strive for excellence and the best possible outcomes in the care we provide, said Barbara Pelletreau, senior vice president of patient safety, Dignity Health.

The Collaborative Alliance for Nursing Outcomes (CALNOC), the nation’s first nursing quality indicators database, today announced it has recognized 17 Dignity Health hospitals for attaining and sustaining excellence in the prevention of injury falls and hospital acquired pressure ulcers. Together the organizations share an important mission to prevent the conditions patients can suffer during hospitalization.

The CALNOC Performance Excellence award program recognizes hospitals for improvement on key nurse sensitive quality indicators that in turn increase the chances of positive outcomes and reduce length of hospital stay for patients. To become a 2015 Performance Excellence winner, Dignity Health hospitals had to achieve zero falls or pressure ulcers for 3 or more quarters in a row.
