Each quarter, the Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital Safety Circle awards the Safety Star, which recognizes departments or individuals that have either the most improved safety record or have made a difference in patient and employee safety. This quarter, the award was given to the hospital’s 6NW unit because they had the most improved safety record from 2016 to 2017.
This quarter's DAISY Award winner is Bronson Snoddy, RN from ICU.
