When it comes to patient safety, it's always top-of-mind. Your surgical team has their system down pat, but sometimes infections happen and the reason is not always known.
Of every 100 patients admitted to a hospital, five will acquire an infection during their stay, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).1
Reducing preventable complications seems easy enough to do. But it might not always be clear what they are. 3M can help you through the Safety in Practice Program.
We will do an unbiased assessment of your facility, observing your current protocols and processes then recommending best practices for improving compliance with guidelines.
Better compliance with healthcare guidelines can positively impact patient outcomes and satisfaction.
