PVMC has installed new patient room signs with pull-out flags to help communicate information to staff and visitors. Each picture has a meaning. The signs also have a small section in the center to insert isolation precaution signs and or other needed information. Pay attention as you enter rooms and look for key information on the signs.

Congratulations to Kelsie Romero for winning the latest Daisy Award and to Janet Hileman for winning the latest Monarch Award!
Janet was nominated for the Monarch Award for spending hours with a family who needed help with lodging and meals who ended up unexpectedly in the hospital while visiting from out of town. Janet, who is a cashier, took time out of her day to help this family and go above her job duties to make sure they were well taken care of and comfortable while here at PVMC.
We are proud that they are a part of Platte Valley Medical Center team!

We’ve commissioned artist Georgia Roswell to create an original piece of landscape artwork made from clothing to be displayed on the new third floor medical/surgery unit. Your help is needed to make this work of art unique to the people of Platte Valley! Please bring in one article of clothing and drop it off at the box in HR by this Friday, Jan. 18. Georgia will use these to create her masterpiece! The clothing can be anything from a scarf to a sock to a pair of jeans.
These bedside monitors monitor vital signs of patients on every medical unit in the hospital and can help alert staff immediately when there is a change or deterioration of a patient’s status. They also allow us to monitor patients to be sure that our interventions are achieving the desired effect. They also incorporate transport monitoring capabilities and patient monitoring information can be shared across departments as the patient moves throughout the hospital.
Healthstream e-learnings have been assigned to all clinical staff. Specific units are scheduled to attend IN-PERSON training the week prior to their go-live. All nurses, CNAs and techs (ED, ICU, MST, Cath Lab, Surgery, Women’s, House Supervisors) are required to attend the in-person training in the MOB2 Conference Room. We will do our best to accommodate all staff in any class regardless of their unit, but be advised that some functions and content are specific to some units.
All other staff are encouraged to sign-up in Healthstream. You can find them by searching “Nihon Kohden.” The full class titles are “PVMC Nihon Kohden Clinical Monitor Training” and “PVMC Nihon Kohden Clinical Super User Training.”
