In brief: WellSpan wins improved safety award

York County-based WellSpan Health won the 2012 Most Improved Safety Award from Canada-based Walsh Integrated.

WellSpan implemented its hand hygiene program in February 2010, according to a news release.

Gettysburg Hospital and York Hospital instituted technology, policies and practices to improve efforts in preventing hospital-acquired infections, according to the release.

Since implementation, the hygiene program has improved the hand-washing compliance rate from 44 percent to a sustained 90 percent.

Founded in 1992, Walsh Integrated created the Walsh Waste Tracker to help hospitals track and properly dispose of their medical waste, according to the company’s website.

It has been dedicated to developing a number of automated solutions to help control and manage quality and safety, according to the site.
