Message from the CNO
Dear Nursing Colleagues:
Welcome to our Nursing Portal! I am excited to welcome you to our organization. As a nursing team, we are guided by our commitment to Respect, Integrity, Compassion and Excellence which serve as our core professional values. As a Magnet Designated organization, our nursing team has developed a strong foundation based on professional practice standards set forth by the ANA Code of Ethics, American Nurse Credentialing Center, Ohio Board of Nursing and our Specialty Professional Organizations. These standards and our practice provide the principles we need to exceed the needs of our patients.
Quality of care and patient experience are our key focus areas. Our goal is to provide exceptional care for Every Patient…Every Time. We continue to focus on improvement strategies in fall reduction, pressure ulcer prevention, and all nurse sensitive indicators to exceed the Magnet® quality requirements (exceeding national benchmarks on nurse sensitive indicators in more than 50 percent of units for eight consecutive quarters).
I am excited to share that Miami Valley Hospital achieved Magnet re-designation in 2013 through their exceptional nursing practice and partnerships with physicians, interdisciplinary colleagues, our community and our academic partners.
I feel honored to be a member of such an outstanding nursing team and I am committed to strive for continued improvement in our quality of care and patient experience work. Our purpose and mission is to “Make a difference in the lives of our patients and families through professional, expert, and compassionate care.”
