Sandpaper sheets, green jello and patients who leave with infections they didn't have when they were admitted. Hospitals DON'T have to be this way.
Nick Jacobs, FACHE - former music teacher and trumpet player - reveals how, as CEO, he transformed a rural, critical care hospital from near-bankruptcy to a profitable, internationally-recognized model of patient-centered care and innovation. By creating a environment that embodies healing in every aspect of its operations, Nick's hospital maintained one of the lowest acquired (nosocomial) infection rates in the U.S. for five years running.
Nick Jacobs has been recognized by FORTUNE, The WALL STREET JOURNAL and MODERN HEALTHCARE as the first healthcare CEO in the U.S. to start a blog (in 2005). HealingHospitals.com
