Quality Report St. Louis Children’s Hospital
Organization Commentary on the Quality Report Org ID: 8394
As the seventh oldest pediatric hospital in the United States and the oldest west of the Mississippi, St. Louis Children’s Hospital has been leading the way in children’s health for 125 years. The hospital, in conjunction with its academic partner Washington University School of Medicine, recognized as a national leader in education, training, research and pediatrician scholarship, and is consistently ranked among the top five medical schools in the United States, has cared for patients from around the globe. National and international centers of excellence include the world’s largest pediatric lung transplant program, the largest team of pediatric epilepsy specialists, the most comprehensive Cerebral Palsy (CP) Center in the country, and the largest selective dorsal rhiztotomy surgical program for children with CP in the world. The hospital's focus on pain management is illustrated by its operational “Ouchless EU.” St. Louis Children’s Hospital scored in the top 5% of the national database in patient satisfaction as determined by Professional Research Consultants and has received their “Five Star Award” for overall quality of care for each year the award has been offered.
The accreditation process continues to be a valuable analysis of our multifaceted, quality-driven approach to pediatric medicine, ensuring the delivery of exceptional care to the population we serve. Our commitment to quality is organization-wide. It is demonstrated by various activities including Patient Safety Rounds led by our senior leadership group, by deploying unit-based pediatric pharmacists on all patient care units to improve medication accuracy, and by the use of a Patient Safety Hotline which allows staff to anonymously report unsafe conditions or practices.
We value the Joint Commission’s strong emphasis on patient safety and high expectations for organized operational processes. Along with this systematic and sensitive approach to providing care to the children and families we serve, our goal is to unite our medical expertise with a generous dose of tenderness to make the healthcare experience as pleasant and comfortable as possible. “Doing What’s Right for Kids” is our mission and exemplifies our pledge to meet and exceed compliance with all regulations and accreditation standards of care.
