Leaders in Quality and Patient Safety

Nationally, hospitalists have become leaders of the patient safety and quality movements. 

At Montefiore Medical Center, hospitalists are firmly committed to patient safety and continuous quality improvement.  

  • With respect to patient safety, hospitalists have led efforts to improve the safety of Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE), evaluate the effects of bar-code confirmation during medication administration, and reduce unnecessary radiation from diagnostic testing. 
  • With respect to Quality of Care, hospitalists have led efforts to review telemetry utilization, increase the use of prophylaxis for thrombo-embolic disease, and develop a discharge care map.
