A Big Thank You to ITU - 18 February 2013

Musgrove’s Intensive Therapy Unit (ITU) team has been awarded the ‘Big Thank You’ for February.

The Big Thank You, which is supported by Taunton’s Buff Urban Day Spa, is a way of rewarding staff for their achievements.

Each month a different team in the hospital is selected for their hard work and outstanding success at Musgrove.

ITU were selected for their successful performance in relation to the recently released Intensive Care National Audit and Research Centre (ICNARC) figures which show mortality rates in Musgrove’s ITU are the lowest in the country when compared to 20 similar units throughout the UK.

Presenting the team with a cake, the hospital’s Director of Human Resources, Nick Macklin said: “The team have achieved consistently low mortality rates which is testament to the hard work of the staff and the on-going commitment they show to patients.

“Staff can be proud of their accomplishments and the positive impact they have on patients’ experience at Musgrove Hospital.”

A member of the team also has the chance to win gift vouchers worth £80, donated by Buff Urban Day Spa. Names are picked at random and this month’s winner was Marcie Soco.
