Deparment of the Month
Alliance Community Hospital’s Department of the Month for September is Quality Services.
The department has had a number of different names over the years, including Utilization Review, Risk and Quality Review.
Quality Services acts as the “go to” department for help and information within the hospital.
“Our department exists to increase safety in the hospital, increase quality in the care of our patients and minimize risk to the hospital,” said Director of Quality Services Barb Dragomir, R.N.C., B.S.N., R.M.C.
The department specializes in infection control, quality (hospital-wide and physician), JCAHO, risk management, patient complaints and safety.
“Combined we have over 105 years of service to ACH,” said Dragomir. “That’s a lot of history in one department!”
The department is proud of the work they do.
“We are dedicated to achieving good outcomes for our patients, visitors and co-workers,” said Dragomir.
She added that the department is always ready and willing to help those in need, and if they cannot help them, they direct them to where they need to go.
“There are many friendly and caring people who work here,” said Dragomir. “It’s been said so often that it’s almost a cliché, but it’s true – we are like a family.”
Congratulations the Quality Services Department on this great achievement. We appreciate all of your hard work and dedication. It is because of Colleagues like you that make Alliance Community Hospital a great place to work.
