2016 CPEX 5: CMZ ICU

Last March 16, 2016, the CMZ Performance Excellence (CPEx) Rounds visited the Intensive Care Unit with the presence of Section head, Dr. Benjamin Lopez and ICU Head Nurse, Ms. Sabrina Ray Anova.

Quality Assurance Audit was conducted by the Nursing Director, Ms. Celita Calma, Assistant Nursing Director for Service, Ms. Kamille Alcala, Infection Control Nurse, Nurse Supervisor Marlon Endino together with Execom, MD Dr. Filipinas Rojo, AO Karren Mae Masuhud and HR Manager, Juvee Calica.

The Patient Safety discussion was held within the ICU area where we went over issues from 2015 and evaluated how they are at the present time.

The ICU staff 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, Wrong-Site, Wrong-Procedure Surgery, Hospital Acquired Infections and on Falls. 

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

The CPEx with the ICU Team was very productive.

We know the CPEx 5 for the Intensive Care Unit may help in the development of the Culture of Patient Safety in Ciudad Medical Zamboanga.
