|The ACE-SAP Clinic office got a face lift this month from Kent Orchard and his construction crew. Kent is the father-in-law of MSN student Sarah Orchard who served at the clinic last spring. She told him about the need for more storage and he jumped at the chance to help us out. We now have a new work counter (instead of a table), two new shelves, two new locking cabinets and a forms organizer. His construction company donated both their time and materials. We thank them all. ~Rus Debonis, Allen College
We Want Your Ideas on Patient Safety
Beginning September 5, we want your ideas to improve patient care.
All clinical and administrative employees are encouraged to participate in an anonymous, online survey to provide a better understanding of how we’re doing with patient safety initiatives at Allen Hospital.
This year, Allen and all other Iowa Health System senior affiliate hospitals and Iowa Health Home Care are adopting the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Patient Safety Culture Survey, which is used by more than 600 hospitals nationwide.
Look for the survey on our intranet from September 5 – 26. For more information, please contact Annette Burke, Risk Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (319) 235-3710.
