2/26/2010 12:00:00 AM

(Friday, February 26, 2010 - Orillia, ON)  – On Monday, March 1, 2010, Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH) will be participating in a three day on-site accreditation survey through Accreditation Canada called Qmentum™.

 

From March 1 to 3, five surveyors will be on-site evaluating OSMH's service delivery from a patient safety and quality improvement perspective. The surveyors will be focusing on 31 required organizational practices and priority processes, such as: patient identification, medication reconciliation, falls prevention and infection control.

 

As a hospital dedicated to excellence, our participation in the accreditation program demonstrates our commitment to patient safety, continuous quality improvement, transparency and accountability.

 

Accreditation is granted by Accreditation Canada, a national non-profit, independent organization. It is a voluntary process for health care providers to assess every aspect of the care and service they deliver against national standards.

 

Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH) is a 230-bed hospital located in Orillia, Ontario (just 114 kilometres north of Toronto) that serves more than 440,000 residents in North Simcoe Muskoka. OSMH provides a comprehensive range of programs and services, including medical, surgical and emergency care, dialysis, obstetrical and paediatric care, oncology, complex continuing care, mental health and rehabilitation services. While it remains Orillia’s community hospital, OSMH has a new role as a regional healthcare centre. For more information please visit our website at www.osmh.on.ca.
