Last March 4, 2016, the CMZ Performance Excellence (CPEx) Rounds visited Ward H (Medical/General Ward).

We started off our visit to Ward H with an audit of the ward based on the DOH Safe Hospital Initiatives and on the modified Quality Assurance Audit followed by the forum part at the CMZ Conference Room for the discussion on Patient Safety.

Quality Assurance Audit was conducted by the Nursing Director, Ms. Celita Calma, Assistant Nursing Director for Service, Ms. Caryl Jamaluddin together with Execom, MD Dr. Filipinas Rojo, AO Karren Mae Masuhud and HR Manager, Juvee Calica.

We moved over to the CMZ Conference Room where we went over issues from 2015 and evaluated how they are at the present time.

The Ward H staff headed by Head Nurse, Ms. Aubrey Mae Araneta Gregorio, were also reoriented on the International Patient Safety Goals and how these could be adapted to the ward especially on Identifying Patients Correctly, Effective Communication, Medication Safety and on Hospital Acquired Infections. 

The Ward H personnel were very dynamic in their sharing of patient safety issues as well as on best practices.

We had a very fruitful discussion with the Ward H Team.

We know the CPEx 4 for Ward H could contribute to the development of the Culture of Patient Safety in Ciudad Medical Zamboanga.
