A Big Thank You to Gould Ward - 31 October 2013

Musgrove’s Gould Ward has been awarded the ‘Big Thank You’ for September.

Sept Thank You

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.

Gould Ward was nominated for the Big Thank for September for working above and beyond the call of duty to improve patient experience and make cost improvements.

Over the past year Gould Ward has helped improve patient care by contributing to a 66% decrease in hospital acquired pressure ulcers. It has also focused even more on cleanliness and reducing unnecessary harm by increasing hand hygiene levels from 95% to 100%.

Presenting the team with a cake, the hospital’s Deputy Chief Executive, Peter Lewis said: “Gould Ward have worked tremendously hard to make significant improvements for patients and staff, which is why I would like to say a big thank you on behalf of the hospital for all their hard work.’’

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 Sharon Reed.
