The AHA’s American Society for Healthcare Engineering this week presented its 2015 Excellence in Health Care Facility Management Award to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa, FL, for its project to reduce slips, trips and falls in common areas. After studying incident reports, the project team implemented 12 safety initiatives that resulted in a 16% reduction in falls from the previous year. The award, presented during National Health Care Facility and Engineering Week, recognizes new or innovative programs or processes to optimize the physical environment and improve patient care. ASHE is an AHA personal membership group.
