Patient Safety and Care

Patient safety and care

Patient safety and well being is our primary concern. Poudre Valley Hospital embraces patient- and family-centered care and encourages you to participate in your care and help us as much as you can. Ask questions, let us know what you like, and speak up if you have a concern.

Here are a few things to expect while you're a patient:

  • Our staff members will wash their hands before examining you. Regular hand-washing is the best way to prevent infections.
  • We will routinely double-check your name and wristband before giving you medicine, tests and procedures.
  • More patients than you might think have a high risk of falling, which can cause injury. If you are at risk for falling, a staff member will help you in the bathroom. Many falls in hospitals take place in the bathroom, and we want to keep you safe and healthy.
  • We will check your vital signs regularly, even at night. We promote rest and sleep, but we also need to wake you for check-ups requested by your doctor. We want to make sure you are safe and doing well.

Poudre Valley Health System has been nationally recognized for its high quality and safety standards and meets and exceeds national standards set by leading national healthcare organizations.

For your safety

Our security staff is here for you. If you're coming and going from the hospital late at night and would like an escort to your vehicle, ask your nurse to contact our officers. Our security staff would be happy to accompany you to your vehicle.
