Summit Award for H.U.S.H.

PVH’s Nursing Care OASIS Team, which calls itself “The Incredibles”, won a Summit Award for its H.U.S.H. Campaign. H.U.S.H. utilizes posters around the hospital to ask people to keep noise levels to a minimum to enhance the healing environment. The team also had buttons printed, so staff could wear them to increase awareness of the program. Nurses were provided with a decibel meter, borrowed from Lincoln Paper and Tissue, LLC, to record sound levels, and the Emergency Department has tried out a head-set for communication which could decrease overhead paging.
