Minnesota Hospital Association

Quality & Patient Safety

Surgery and Procedures

Millions of surgeries and procedures are performed yearly at Minnesota’s hospitals and health systems and surgery centers. MHA and its member hospitals have developed tools to enhance patient safety during surgeries and procedures. Hospitals and health systems use these tools to create a culture of safety across the state.    

MHA has developed a surgery and procedure road map and a venous thromboembolism (VTE) prevention strategies gap analysis outlining evidence-based recommendations and standards for the development of prevention and quality improvement programs that align process improvements with outcome data. Road maps reflect published literature and guidance from relevant professional organizations and regulatory agencies, as well as identified proven practices.
