I'm still glowing with happiness from Purim. I helped to raise funds for a local charitable organization during the fun-filled day. Volunteers hit the streets with a particular T-shirt. I jazzed mine up a bit, as you can see.
On another topic, I wonder what YOU would respond if you were to answer the following question from a Help a Reporter Out (HARO) listserv (I removed relevant contact info so people don't bombard the message sender with unprofessional responses):
Biotech and Healthcare1) Summary: Quantifying "soft" patient safety and hospital quality measures
Media Outlet: Blanketyblank's Hospital Review
Deadline: 5:00 PM CST - 1 March
Many hospitals are focusing on creating patient safety cultures, engaging patients and improving quality. While clinical quality can be quantified according to different diseases and processes, how can the "softer" aspects of safety and quality, such as culture and patient engagement, be measured? How can hospitals quantify these aspects of care so they can determine their progress?
Please share your recommendations for quality patient care and culture in the comments section below this blogpost.
I look forward to reasonable replies ;^ D
Let's figure out this Quality Patient Care and Culture thing together!
