Quality and Safety
At Arkansas Surgical Hospital, we constantly search for better and more efficient ways to provide exceptional healthcare for our patients. We are changing patient expectations regarding their healthcare experience. Paying attention to the details has led to recognition and ratings that we are proud of, but we ask ourselves everyday, “How can we make our patients’ experience better?”
Our excellent physicians and caring staff provide exceptional helathcare to all our patients. This includes keeping our patients safe while they are in the hospital. Some of the ways we keep our patients safe include:
- Infection rate of less than 0.2% compared to national average of 3.0%
- Shorter than average hospital stays
- Patient to nurse ratio of 5:1
- Rounding hourly on patients by nursing staff
- All RN nursing staff is Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certified
Another safety feature at Arkansas Surgical Hospital is the fact that we have extensive experience in your particular surgery. No other facility in Arkansas performs more joint replacements than Arkansas Surgical Hospital. More experience equates to safer, better outcomes for you.
are proud of our awards. But our pride goes beyond the awards themselves.
Recognition lets us know we are making a difference in people’s lives.
Returning people to their active lifestyles—to doing what they love to do—is
the biggest reward of all.
