Seven SC hospitals designated as "Safe Surgery 2015 Hospital"


Seven South Carolina hospitals received “Safe Surgery 2015 Hospital” designations during this year’s SCMA/SCHA TAP conference.

Facilities that have fully implemented the surgical safety checklist for every patient and every procedure may self-certify through an application process. Applications are then reviewed by a multi-disciplinary committee.

The next designations will be recognized at the SC Transforming Health Symposium in April. The application deadline is February 29, 2016.
