Northern Nevada Medical Center receives HealthInsight Award for patient safety

By ThisIsReno

SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE

HealthInsight recently recognized Northern Nevada Medical Center at a recent award presentation in Las Vegas, for patient safety. NNMC’s Intensive Care Unit and 6th Floor Surgical and Rehab Units have gone 18 months without any central line associated blood stream infections. NNMC is one of only six hospitals in the entire state to receive this award.

Healthcare-associated infections (HAI) are associated with morbidity/mortality being higher in acute care hospital settings putting patients’ lives at risk, increasing days of hospitalization and adding healthcare costs. HAI are largely preventable via better hygiene and scientifically tested techniques.

HealthInsight is a private, non-profit, community-based organization with more than 30 years dedicated to improving health and health care, that is composed of locally governed organizations in Nevada, New Mexico and Utah.
