Hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers in Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee are invited to participate in LAMMICO’s annual Patient Safety Award and Grant program. This program promotes patient safety initiatives optimized via LAMMICO risk management and patient safety education. The 2021-2022 Patient Safety Award and Grant program is centered on devastating events such as hurricanes, pandemics, terrorist attacks, or situations in which practitioners may make errors that cause harm or death to a patient.

The hospitals or ambulatory surgery centers that demonstrate the best support mechanisms for staff along with the impact of the interventions on staff or patient safety, as determined by a committee of LAMMICO Risk Management professionals, will be awarded:

  • $10,000 grant to the winner and $5,000 grant to the second place participant to be used for nursing professional development

The winner and second place participant will also receive:

  • One-year risk manager membership to the American Society for Health Care Risk Management (ASHRM)
  • One-year complimentary membership to Medical Interactive Community for all employees to access our risk management CME/CNE/MOC courses online

Completed applications are due May 31, 2022.
