The Partnership for Health and Accountability has presented its prestigious Quality and Patient Safety Award to Redmond Regional Medical Center for its project that reduced infection control risks through effective rounding. The project titled, “Reducing Patients’ and Employees’ Environmental and Infection Control Risks through Effective Rounding,” won third place in the Hospitals with 100 to 299 Beds Category.

Redmond was also presented with a Circle of Excellence Award, an honor given to hospitals that have demonstrated a sustained commitment to quality and patient safety as evidenced by not only winning a patient safety award in 2009, but also by earning three or more PHA Patient Safety Awards within the previous five years. These annual awards recognize Georgia health care organizations for achievement in reducing the risk of medical errors and improving patient safety and medical outcomes
