KRMC Safety Measures

KRMC Safety Indicators

As part of Kingman Regional Medical Center’s (KRMC) ongoing effort to improve quality and safety, we measure, track, and report specific information.

Many public and private organizations share hospital data related to patient safety and care. KRMC supports these efforts when the shared information is meaningful, accurate, and timely. We believe greater transparency informs consumers when making healthcare choices and encourages care providers to focus on continuous improvement.

Virtually all of these reporting organizations are unable to provide up-to-date information. For this reason, KRMC has chosen to publish its most current key patient safety information on our website. This allows our community access to important safety data in a timely manner.

Individuals interested in more comprehensive hospital performance information may refer to other websites, such as the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) “Hospital Compare” website.  However, the information on these websites may not be current and could date back several years.
