Loretto Hospital is providing better standards, better care, and better outcomes to the community it serves! We are taking every step to prevent infection during our patient’s hospital stay. In a recent infection control report submitted to National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN), Loretto Hospital showed zero infections in the First Quarter of 2017. Hand hygiene and implementing standard best practices when caring for our patients are key for preventing infections. We will continue to raise the bar in service excellence with our best practices to keep our patients safe.
