Quality

QualityQuality

Our patients have a right to expect excellent care.  Patients have a right to expect privacy, respect and information about their care, plus the highest levels of service.  We strive to offer newer and better programs, services and technology for the members of our community.  We use patient care delivery models and standards of practice that are evidence based and constantly measured to improve outcomes for patients and families.

  • Evaluate Nursing Quality Indicators and report to the National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators (NDNQI) which meets CMS requirements.  The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) program for reporting Health Quality Data for Annual Payment Update now includes a focus on measuring nursing quality.  In 2010 CMS required hospitals to report their participation in a clinical database registry for nursing-sensitive care.

  • Service Quality evaluates our patient’s view of the care we provided during their hospital stay using Press Ganey evaluation.  We work to provide excellent care in our communication, pain management, response of hospital staff and discharge process.  We want our patient to choose Houston Methodist every time they need healthcare.
