UHS Hospitals is participating in the “5 Million Lives Campaign”, a national program from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement which builds on the success of the previous “100K Lives Campaign”. The goals of the new campaign are to prevent harm with new interventions to: prevent pressure ulcers, reduce MRSA infection, prevent harm from high-alert medications, reduce surgical complication, deliver reliable, evidence-based care for CHF, and get Boards on board (involving hospital Boards in safe care). More information will be forthcoming on these efforts.
