Botsford News Release
Farmington Hills, Mich. (August 25, 2010)---Alexa Simkow, R.N., surgical services nursing director at Botsford Hospital in Farmington Hills, has been selected as a recipient of a Botsford Hospital 2010 Safety Excellence Award. The award recognizes employees’ contributions to the hospital’s safety initiatives.
Using her knowledge of inspection standards, Simkow has helped many hospital units assure that their policies and procedures meet rigorous standards expected of hospitals. These standards focus on providing safe, well-documented patient care. Simkow has been instrumental in implementing a surgical checklist to prevent errors during surgery.
Simkow, says, “I chose to come to Botsford because quality is its number one priority. It’s apparent to me that we gain big results on quality measures because we value our patients and not because accrediting agencies tell us we must. I am lucky to be part of an organization that knows the importance of providing excellent care.”
