PHILLIPS COUNTY HOSPITAL RECEIVES SECOND CONSECUTIVE DEFICIENCY-FREE SURVEY
Following the Laboratory Department’s deficiency free survey report in April for Phillips County Health Systems, the Radiology and Mammography Department have been cited no deficiencies during their recent inspection survey.
“Our deficiency-free status means we follow all regulatory requirements and demonstrates to our community our team’s dedication to providing excellent patient care,” said Radiology Manager Mildred Hadley. “I’m very proud of my team and how they deliver our mission to provide patient-centered excellence in their care. PCHS hit another home run with its’ second perfect result survey.”
The inspection survey includes an in-depth review of the department’s policies and procedures, staff credentialing and continuing education, patient communication, and equipment inspections.
“It’s validation,” said Katie Van Allen, Mammography Technologist. “We work hard and want to do the best for our patients by striving to provide the highest quality in care here locally at the hospital.”
Experts at the American College of Radiology and Society of Breast Imaging recommend that women receive annual mammograms starting at age 40. For more information about PCHS’s radiology services or to schedule a mammogram, call 785-540-4930.
