Gym intimidation is definitely one of my pet peeves. There are several factors that become reasons folks avoid the gym. It breaks my heart to hear stories of folks; no matter their age, gender, or fitness level finding it too intimidating to work out in the gym they just signed up for in hopes for a healthier lifestyle.
It is National Healthcare Quality Week (Oct. 20-26) and we not only want to recognize our quality management team for their good work, but thank all staff for their contributions in ensuring high quality care on their units and throughout the organization. It takes a lot of dedication to achieve results of excellence and to “always” satisfy and create the ideal patient experience. We would like to take a few minutes to share with you just what quality management means to Community Medical Centers.
The temperatures and leaves are falling, letting us know that it is autumn again in the Central Valley and time to celebrate Pharmacy Week. I have been involved in many Pharmacy Weeks but this will be my first at Community Medical Centers and I am excited to be a part of such a great pharmacy family.
What do bees, a farmers market, coffee grounds, sustainable seafood, healthy food sampling, raisins, reusable grocery totes, and a raffle for a chance to win a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) box of organic produce all have in common?
I am so proud of our Pharmacy Residency Program at Community Regional Medical Center! We just received notification last week from the American Society of Health System Pharmacists (ASHP) Commission of Credentialing about extending our accreditation for the remainder of our current six year cycle until 2016.
