ECH recognized as a top performer

Thursday, March 06, 2014

Ephrate Community HospitalEphrata Community Hospital was recently recognized by the VHA Hospital Engagement Network (HEN) as a top performer in two areas of focus: central lineassociated blood stream infections (CLABSI) and ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP).

A top performer is one that sustained a zero rate for the past four quarters for a given outcome measure in a Partnership for Patients Area of Focus.

Ephrata Community Hospital also was one of 12 hospitals recognized as most improved in three or more areas of focus.

ECH was among the top 10 to 15 percent of the most improved hospitals for catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI), falls and readmissions.

“This recognition is the result of a lot of hard work among our staff members,” said Susan Shollenberger, assistant vice president, quality and compliance, Ephrata Community Hospital. “The feedback lets us know that the patients are definitely benefiting from our efforts.’
