Sky Lakes Medical Center is committed to eliminating all types of preventable harm.
All health care is delivered by human beings – people who are dedicated to safe and effective treatment, yet people who are nonetheless imperfect beings. As such, we know that harm occurs in hospitals. We believe our best opportunity for eliminating harm comes from shared learning.
We want our patients and our community to be active partners in helping us in this endeavor. We recognize that the healthcare industry is still learning how to make healthcare safer, and as we do a better job of detecting harm, the number of events reported may increase until methods are created to reduce the number of events.
Sky Lakes Medical Center's infection rates among joint-replacement patients recently was among the best in the state with zero infections while performing 300-plus cases a year. The medical center also regularly reports zero cases of pneumonia associated with patients on ventilators.
Independent agencies give our hip- and knee-replacement, and our spine surgical performance top ratings. Our performance in other patient-care areas is equally impressive.
