We know that the choice to proceed with a major surgical procedure is not made lightly. That's why, when it comes to orthopedic surgery at Mount Nittany Health, we want all our patients to know that we are firmly committed to the highest standards of quality and patient safety.
Part of that commitment comes in the form of best practice-driven standards and extensive examination of our program by third-party organizations. We adhere to The Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals and The Universal Protocol.
At Mount Nittany Health, we consistently strive to expand our quality and patient safety by participating in the public reporting of quality measures of care while innovating internal quality initiatives relating to patient safety. Through regular meetings of orthopedic surgeons, combined with frequent protocol review by the multidisciplinary Patient Safety Committee, we establish best practices and identify performance improvement opportunities.
