Holy Name Medical Center Achieves Top Marks In Department of Health's "Hospital Performance Report, 2012"

Date: 7/9/2013

Scores place Holy Name among the top 10 percent of hospitals in New Jersey for three out of four measures

In its annual "Health Care Quality Assessment - Hospital Performance Report" issued last month, the New Jersey Department of Health gave Holy Name Medical Center scores that rank it among the highest performing hospitals in New Jersey.

The report's overall scores, which are given for heart attack, pneumonia, surgical care improvement and heart failure, summarize "the percent of time that a hospital provided the correct care," according to the report.  Holy Name scored 100% in heart attack care, 99% in pneumonia care, 99% in surgical care improvement and 100% in heart failure care. These numbers place Holy Name among the top 10 percent of hospitals in New Jersey for heart attack, surgical care and heart failure, and the highest overall in Bergen County.

The four measures were selected by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS), and The Joint Commission, an independent, not-for-profit organization recognized nationwide for quality accreditation. Each measure has a set of patient safety indicators that influences the quality of care a patient receives. For example, all heart attack patients should be given aspirin upon arrival and discharge, and beta-blocker medication at discharge. Pneumonia patients should receive pneumonia and flu vaccines, and have blood cultures.  Surgical patients should be given preventative antibiotics and have their temperatures monitored. Heart failure patients should be assessed for left ventricular systolic function and administered ACE inhibitors or ARBs (angiotensin receptor blocker) at discharge.

"Patient safety and quality of care are Holy Name Medical Center's top clinical priorities," explains Sheryl Slonim, DNP, RN-BC, NEA-BC, Executive Vice President, Patient Care Services & Chief Nursing Officer. "Our Medical Center has historically scored very well on the DOH's Hospital Performance Report, and we are very proud to have been able to perpetuate that achievement. Holy Name's program of safety and quality improvement is a never-ending effort that involves continual, intense scrutiny of patient care processes and the development of means and methods to ensure that the right care is administered at the right time for every single patient."
