Along with the prestigious ASGE Award, we are extremely honored to announce our recognition from the Patient Safety Authority.
We presented a summary of all quality initiatives and changes that have been implemented in the last couple of years, which led to our practice being a leader in patient safety. Seeing as though this was a collaborative effort, we are very proud of our team as they have been consistently thorough in all initiatives regarding our quality and patient safety.
“Patient Safety Awareness Week is a great time for the Authority to recognize those individuals and groups within Pennsylvania’s healthcare facilities who have taken the steps necessary to improve patient safety within their facility,” Mike Doering, executive director of the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority said.
Our practice was one of ten in the state of Pennsylvania that is being recognized for our commitment to patient safety, and is the only non-hospital being recognized.
Regional Gi receives National Quality and Safety Recognition from ASGE
Regional Gi has also received the prestigious National Quality and Safety Recognition from the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE). It is an honor to be awarded along with an elite group of 35 other endoscopy centers in Pennsylvania, being the only center located in Lancaster County.
The ASGE Endoscopy Unit Recognition Program honors endoscopy centers that have demonstrated a commitment to patient safety and quality in endoscopy.
“We are one of the few facilities in the state that has gone through this rigorous process by attending courses in Philadelphia and adequately implemented the training, rules and regulations of quality and safety into our office.” says Dr. Dale Rosenberg.
“We have to re-apply for this achievement every three years, so it is an ongoing process. We want our patients to know that we are up to date on all regulations required.”
Regional Gi met the high standards of all ASGE guidelines on physician privileging, quality assurance, endoscopy reprocessing, CDC infection control guidelines and ensuring endoscopy staff competency.
Dr. Rosenberg says “the entire Regional Gi staff is committed to safety and providing the highest quality care for all our patients.”
