What does the word “quality” mean in a medical context? It takes on much more than the standard dictionary definition – it must be personified, acted upon and achieved every day. You can’t simply “fall short” of quality at a hospital – too much is at stake. That’s why at Nebraska Heart Institute/Heart Hospital, we have a sharp focus on the quality of our care and the safety of our patients every day.
Our definition of quality is, “A measure achieved with intelligent design and concerted effort. Something we strive for every day, even when no one is looking.” It’s an unwavering commitment to excellence; something that is always kept at the forefront of our efforts, regardless of any changes in technology, procedures or size of our hospital.
