Quality & Safety

Below are just some of the steps employees at Mile Bluff Medical Center take in order to ensure patient safety.

  • Using two patient identifiers - This is done by checking a patient's arm band whenever a lab sample is collected, medication is given, blood is transfused, or surgery is performed.
  • Practicing proper hand hygiene - Employees use soap and water or alcohol-based gel to reduce the risk of spreading infection to patients.
  • Avoiding the cause of drug-resistant infections - Employees make sure that no inappropriate medications are used to treat a patient's condition.
  • Ensuring a patient's privacy - Employees follow HIPAA laws and take precautionary steps to protect your personal health information.
  • Helping patients find assistance - If a patient needs further assistance, employees will help connect patients with additional resources.
