Hospital acquired (nosocomial) infection rates have been very much in the news these last several years, including the Institute of Medicine's report back in 2004. We take it very seriously here at Bayside, too! We constantly monitor and assess our programs and practices to eliminate, to the greatest degree possible, those practices and processes that may result in harm or discomfort to those we are privileged to serve. We have an active Quality Assessment/Performance Improvement (QA/PI) program whereby we constantly monitor our results against best-in-practice standards. Our Incident Reporting program identifies problem areas, and devises corrective actions and efforts. At the end of the day, we always remember why we are here: "First, do no harm."
