Maryland Patient Safety Center Gives Adventist HealthCare Top Prize in 2022 Minogue Awards for Patient Safety Innovation
Gaithersburg, MD – Adventist HealthCare has earned the 2022 Minogue Award, the Maryland Patient Safety Center’s highest honor for patient safety innovation. Adventist HealthCare topped a list of 10 organizations in Maryland who were recognized for top safety and quality solutions in healthcare.
The award-winning program was titled “Improving Patient Experience and Shared Decision-Making with Interdisciplinary Bedside Rounding.” The project created a standard, 4-minute interaction between interdisciplinary care teams, patients and their families. The initiative was designed to involve family members more fully in inpatient hospital stays and discharge planning.
Adventist HealthCare will receive the award and present the project at the 18th Annual Maryland Patient Safety Conference on March 4. Recipients are selected by a panel of independent judges who are leaders in the Maryland healthcare community.
“Loved ones play an important role on our care teams,” noted Susan Glover, Adventist HealthCare’s Senior Vice President and Chief Quality & Integrity Officer. “This project demonstrates how consistently including families in decision-making processes can improve patient communication and outcomes. “We are humbled to earn this prestigious recognition from the Maryland Patient Safety Center, which acknowledges Adventist HealthCare’s commitment to healthcare safety and innovation for our community.”
The Minogue Awards recognize Maryland healthcare organizations that have made a demonstrable difference in patient safety through an innovative solution. They are named for the Maryland Patient Safety Center’s first President and Executive Director, William Minogue, MD, to honor his contributions to and passion for improving patient care and safety.
“With dozens of submissions to choose from, we know that healthcare organizations here in Maryland are some of the most forward thinking throughout the country,” said Blair Eig, MD, President and CEO of the Maryland Patient Safety Center. “We are proud to recognize all participants for their attention, innovation, and commitment to addressing some of the most pertinent and complex issues penetrating patient safety today. Congratulations to the winners on their successful contributions to our mission of Keeping Maryland Healthcare Safe.”
