The Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence has been given to just four percent of the more than 6,000 critical care units in the United States.
It’s not about the talk. At Rhode Island Hospital we actively seek out ways to improve the care of our patients and respond immediately with solutions when we find that care has been less than optimal.
See how the hospital stacks up against Rhode Island state and national averages for hospital care. In this section of our site, you can also find the results of our patient surveys. What do our patients say about us? Find out here:
“Here, every person plays a critical role and is responsible for ensuring quality and promoting patient safety. We hold every staff person accountable for ensuring 100 percent compliance with our safety policies and procedures.”
As an organization, we voluntarily report to state and national accreditation organizations and publish data about our quality outcomes and patient survey results on our website for the public to examine. Although we regularly open ourselves to rigorous reviews of our hospital processes and services, we believe that our ultimate accountability is to our patients and their families.
From electronic medical records to our automated laboratory, Rhode Island Hospital has developed, tested and implemented many initiatives that have resulted in safer care for our patients.
Rhode Island Hospital staff and physicians work together as a team to actively find ways to improve the quality of care we provide to our patients.
