Virtua Patient Safety and Quality Care Receive National Recognition
Virtua has been honored again with two awards from prestigious, national organizations that recognize its high standards for patient safety and quality care.
Virtua has achieved the Healthgrades 2016 Patient Safety Excellence Award™, a designation that recognizes superior performance in hospitals that have prevented the occurrence of serious, potentially avoidable complications for patients during hospital stays. The distinction places Virtua among the top 10% of hospitals in the nation for its excellent performance as evaluated by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals.
Virtua Marlton’s 3 North Cardiopulmonary Unit will receive the AMSN PRISM Award®, a relatively new honor recognizing exceptional nursing practice, leadership, and outcomes in hospital medical-surgical units. The award, which stands for “Premier Recognition In the Specialty of Med-Surg”, is the first of its kind honoring med-surg nursing units across the country. It is co-sponsored by the Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN) and the Medical-Surgical Nursing Certification Board (MSNCB). The award is given to outstanding acute care/med-surg units or adult/pediatric units classified as med-surg.
