HANNIBAL REGIONAL RECEIVES HEALTHGRADES 2016 OUTSTANDING PATIENT EXPERIENCE AWARD


Hannibal Regional is pleased to announce that it has received the Healthgrades 2016 Outstanding Patient Experience Award. Hannibal Regional was identified as providing outstanding performance in the delivery of a positive experience for patients during their hospital stay, according to Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals.

 

Healthgrades evaluated 3,858 hospitals that submitted at least 100 patient experience surveys to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), covering admissions from April 2014 – March 2015 in order to identify hospital performance in this area.


“At Hannibal Regional our team is focused on providing personalized guidance to help our patients on their path to better,” says Todd Ahrens, Hannibal Regional Healthcare System President/CEO.  “We  have a team of dedicated professionals who are committed to delivering patient-centered care that is efficient, safe and effective which is continuing to drive exceptional outcomes.”


Healthgrades evaluated performance by applying a scoring methodology to 10 patient experience measures, using data collected from a 32-question patient experience survey of the hospital’s own patients. The survey questions focus on patients’ perspectives of their care in the hospital.  Question topics range from cleanliness and noise levels in patient rooms to factors such as pain management and responsiveness to patients’ needs.  The measures also include whether a patient would recommend the hospital to friends or family.


In order to be recognized by Healthgrades, hospitals must meet eligibility requirements for consideration, which in addition to the number of survey responses, includes clinical performance thresholds.  Nationally, 2,965 hospitals met those requirements with 448 hospitals outperforming their peers, based on their patients’ responses in order to achieve this distinction. Hannibal Regional’s performance places them among the top 15% in the nation.


“Consumers are increasingly using patient experience and satisfaction as a measure to both evaluate hospitals and to select where they want to obtain care,” said Evan Marks, Chief Strategy Officer, Healthgrades.  “We commend those hospitals that have achieved the Healthgrades 2016 Outstanding Patient Experience Award for delivering superior patient care experiences during their hospital stay.” For more information about Healthgrades, to download a full copy of the report or to get information about hospital and physician quality, visit: www.Healthgrades.com/quality today.

Baby-FriendlyTM

As Missouri’s only Baby-Friendly™ facility, the Chris Coons Women’s Care Center at Hannibal Regional Hospital has been recognized by the Missouri Department of Health as the state experts on breastfeeding and asked to share their expertise with other hospitals in the state. By sharing their knowledge, the Chris Coons Women’s Care Center team is supporting national goals of improving the health of U.S. citizens. The U.S. Surgeon General, as well as a White House Task Force and the U.S. government’s Healthy People 2020 objectives have called for more education regarding the benefits of breastfeeding in order to foster healthier communities.

In order to achieve the stringent Baby-Friendly designation, the Chris Coons Women’s Care Center improved breastfeeding initiation rates from 62% to 75%, and the rate continues to climb. A recent CDC survey ranks Hannibal Regional Hospital’s infant feeding care practices as better than 97% of all birth facilities nationwide. Patient satisfaction rates have increased as well through support for new breastfeeding moms and their families.

The Baby-Friendly designation is awarded following completion of a rigorous on-site survey.  Based on the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding, this prestigious international award recognizes birth facilities that offer breastfeeding mothers the information, confidence and skills needed to successfully initiate and continue breastfeeding. The award is maintained by continuing to practice the Ten Steps as demonstrated by quality processes.

 Ten Steps for Successful Breastfeeding:

  • Family quiet time from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily 
  • Education for parents to learn how to calm their crying infant with the five S’s: Swaddling, Side/Stomach Position, Shushing Sounds, Swinging, Sucking 
  • Updates to education materials 
  • Redesign of Childbirth Education classes to reflect family-centered maternity care 
  • Breast Feeding Support Line and weekly breastfeeding support groups held on Monday nights and Wednesday mornings
