HCA Healthcare recently presented the 2016 HCA Healthcare Awards of Distinction to recipients at a ceremony in Nashville. The HCA Healthcare Awards of Distinction include the Frist Humanitarian Award, the HCA Innovators Award and the HCA Excellence in Nursing Award. These annual awards celebrate employees, physicians and volunteers who exemplify the company’s culture and values.
“The HCA Healthcare Awards of Distinction celebrate some of HCA’s finest employees, physicians and volunteers who live out our company’s values and mission every day,” said Milton Johnson, HCA’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Our HCA Healthcare Awards of Distinction recipients have demonstrated that delivering healthcare the way it was intended – compassionate, patient-centered, community-focused – makes a difference in the lives of our patients, our communities and beyond.”
Hunter Davis and Sean Albert received the HCA Innovators Award in the quality and patient safety category. While working together in the IT&S department of HCA’s Capital division, based in Richmond, they created an application called IV Guardian, which proactively alerts nurses about potential IV medication errors, improving patient safety and reducing IV alarms which helps provide a better patient experience.
