Beverly Smiley, R.N., B.S.N., C.P.H.Q.
Administrative Nurse CQI and Patient Safety
As an administrative nurse in the CQl and Patient Safety Department I feel a tremendous sense of satisfaction as I work collaboratively with staff in the identification and implementation of interventions that help to promote excellence in clinical care and ensure patient safety. By supporting quality improvement activities for the different departments and committees, I have the opportunity to help take patient care to the "next level"- the highest quality of patient care possible. The CQI department supports and encourages my growth in this area with interesting educational opportunities that expand and enhance my knowledge of health-care quality.
