Kerr Receives Patient Safety Hero AwardKHA and the K-HIIN group recently recognized Patti Kerr, Bluegrass Community Hospital, as the latest Patient Safety Hero Awardee. Kerr was nominated by Angie Ingram, Quality Director, who elaborated on why she truly deserved the award:

Patti Kerr brings a leadership background to the ICN role providing education and support to our staff, physicians and patients. She works hand in hand with our EVS, Central Sterile and Laboratory staffs in quality control monitoring and process improvement activities. This is demonstrated in the skill and knowledge in these departments in their role in patient safety as well as our low and sustained HAI rates.

Congratulations to Kerr and all the Bluegrass Community Hospital staff for their quality health care achievements!
