All hospitals speak of quality in terms of clinical data that is collected and analyzed over time.
Quality can be reported to show how well a department achieves desired health outcomes. Outcomes show how well staff is meeting standards of care. At Aspen Valley Hospital, we would like to assure you the care we provide is:
SAFE: Avoiding injuries to patients from care that is intended to help.
EFFECTIVE: Services are provided based on scientific knowledge and evidence-based practice.
PATIENT-CENTERED: Respectful care is individualized to patient needs, ensuring patients’ values and beliefs guide all decisions.
TIMELY: Providing care as quickly as possible, reducing delays that can be harmful.
EFFICIENT: Non-wasteful care of all resources.
EQUITABLE: Care is provided regardless of a patient’s gender, ethnicity, geographic location and socio-economic status.
