If you get a chance to pick up a copy of the February edition of Local Color you’ll see a familiar face on page 24. Our own Chef Mike Anderson was featured in this month’s magazine. The article covers Chef Mike’s early career and how he came to be a part of the PVMC family. It also talks about the daily business of the Silver Aspen Bistro, from planning menu items to handling the lunch rush, and how Chef Mike comes up with some of our favorite dishes. You can view the story here, or support Local Color by purchasing this month’s magazine or a year’s subscription at www.localcolormag.com.
All clinical staff should now have received a web-based survey on Patient Safety. The survey asks for your opinion about patient safety issues and error and event reporting in our facility. This survey is part of our hospital’s efforts to continuously improve patient safety and the working environment for clinicians at PVMC.
If you have yet to complete the survey, a reminder e-mail is slated for distribution on or about February 8th. Please watch for it and complete your confidential survey as soon as possible and definitely before the February 14 deadline.
Your input and efforts are extremely important and will contribute to improving the safety culture on your unit and throughout the hospital, please watch for the survey to arrive in your e-mail box and respond right away.
If you have any questions or problems with the survey, contact Colleen Casaceli, Patient Safety Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ext. 1553.
