(Greenwood, SC, December 20, 2022)- The South Carolina Hospital Association (SCHA)
has presented Self Regional with the Zero Harm Award, a distinction given
to hospitals who are at the forefront of preventing medical errors.
The award began as an idea between the SCHA and SC DHEC for hospitals in the state to achieve “zero harm,” or, going long periods of time without hospital-acquired infections in common areas, which some estimate is the third leading cause of death in the US. Through the successes of the award, countless patient’s lives have been saved.
Jennifer Clary, SRH Director of Quality Improvement & Patient Safety said, “We are focused and committed to the safety of our patients at Self Regional and we’re so happy and honored to get this award that shows our community that.”
