Last April 13, 2016, the CMZ Performance Excellence (CPEx) Rounds Team with CMZ Execom, namely CEO Atty. Jhihann Natividad, MD Dr. Filipinas Rojo and HR Manager, Juvee Calica visited the CMZ Pulmonary Unit with Pulmonary Unit head, Dr. Josephine Gemarino and Chief Respiratory Therapist, Ms. Joanne Suarez, in attendance together with the staff.
The Patient Safety discussions were done at the Cardio-Pulmonary Unit.

The Pulmonary Unit staff were reoriented on the International Patient Safety Goals and how these could be adapted to the ancillary unit especially on Identifying Patients Correctly, Effective Communication, Medication Safety and on Hospital Acquired Infections. 

The Pulmonary Unit head made sure that the personnel were productive in their sharing of patient safety issues as well as on best practices.

We had a very fruitful discussion with the Pulmonary Unit and we know the CPEx 6 could contribute to the development of the Culture of Patient Safety in Ciudad Medical Zamboanga.
