Orlando Health is focused on delivering healthcare in a safe environment. Many interventions are currently in place to help accomplish this goal. To begin, a Protective Services Team is always available to ensure the physical safety of our patients, visitors and team members. In addition, badge-accessed medical units are utilized in all areas that house inpatient children and newborn nurseries. Infants and their new parents are also banded with special bracelets to provide an added level of security.
To improve medical safety, our clinical teams are trained to identify and prevent adverse medical events by performing mock scenarios simulating patient falls and medication errors. Training is also provided to our team members regarding the prevention of pressure ulcers and infections. We ask you to partner with us in your safety and encourage you to hold all of our team members accountable for performing hand hygiene prior to caring for you or your loved one.
