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 hospital that demonstrates the best improvements (in policies, procedures, protocols and/or processes) related to a reduction in CLABSI, or the ambulatory surgery center that demonstrates the best improvements (in policies, procedures, protocols and/ or processes) related to improvement in hand hygiene compliance rates 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)
