Quality and Patient Satisfaction
- Every hospital in the country uses a standard patient satisfaction survey with 10 categories. For the last reporting period, the scores for 5 of the 10 categories on the survey were better than 90% of the hospitals in the country.
- The government uses a program called Value Based Purchasing where organizations are rewarded or punished financially based on results in patient safety, clinical quality, satisfaction and cost. The idea is to identify hospitals that provide the best value to the consumer. Ivinson Memorial Hospital earned the best score among hospitals in Wyoming and Northern Colorado.
- Hospitals all across the country struggle to prevent hospital acquired infections. Two that are difficult to prevent are Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI) and Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLABSI). At Ivinson, we have not had a CLABSI since February 2013 and we have not had a CAUTI since May 2014.
