At GAMC, clean hands are healing hands!

GAMC Clean hands

What’s the best way to prevent the spread of pathogenic and antibiotic resistant bacteria in a healthcare setting? Clean hands of course! In fact, hand hygiene greatly reduces the incidence rate of healthcare associated infections (HAIs). This has been well known for decades, yet the overall implementation of hand hygiene across the nation is a dismal 40 percent. At Glendale Adventist Medical Center, we recently renewed our commitment to improve our hand hygiene rates and prevent infection. We invite you to join our new initiative – “Clean Hands are Healing Hands”! After all, preventing healthcare associated infections is in our hands—our clean hands. As health care professionals, we have the power of healing and we do not want to compromise this sacred mission.

We salute a very special angel of “Mercy”!

Glendale Adventist DAISY award winner

At Glendale Adventist Medical Center, we think all of our nurses are wonderful angels of mercy. That’s why it’s so fitting that our latest DAISY Award winner is literally an angel named Mercy. We’re proud to recognize Mercy Alex, RN, outpatient surgery for her outstanding contributions to the lives of our patients and their families. A patient’s family member wrote us: “Mercy was my father’s nurse in the recovery room. She provided exceptional care and was very careful super attentive. I hope all RNs provide similar care to your patients. I will most definitely recommend Glendale Adventist Medical Center to my family and friends because of Mercy and the outstanding care that she gave my father.” Congratulations Mercy, and thank you for the outstanding care that you provide our patients!

White Memorial lights up the night in remembrance of our Little Angels

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. On October 15th, the Little Angels of White Memorial Support group welcomed over 40 families and nearly 200 people to the Courtyard by Olivet Chapel for our 9th annual Candle Lighting Ceremony. The ceremony is held to remember the babies lost to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or infant death. Candles were lit at precisely 7:00 pm in honor of each little angel, joining the world in the glow of a continuous wave of light. It was a special night for reflection, remembrance and healing.
