Heidi Hough becomes Platte Valley Medical Center’s new Infection Prevention Specialist. After 5 years with SCL Health in Platte Valley’s ICU and SDU, Heidi joins the Infection Control team in the Performance Improvement department. As an infection preventionist, her new role will be to monitor and help prevent infection throughout the hospital – with patients, doctors and visitors. She will be working with the various regulatory agencies and consulting with doctors on best practices.
Having been in nursing since 1986, Heidi worked in multiple departments including the VA and Western Infectious Disease Consultants before joining Platte Valley. Heidi’s giving spirit goes beyond the hospital with much of her free time going toward taking care of her animals: horses, cats, dogs and chickens.
If you have any infection control issues or questions for Heidi, you can call 303-498-1558 or visit her in Performance Improvement Suite across the hall from the conference center in the main building of Platte Valley.
