key 250

Lodi Health has been recognized as a 2014 Top Performer on Key Quality Measures® by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in the United States.

Lodi Health was the only hospital in San Joaquin County to be recognized as part of The Joint Commission’s 2015 annual report “America’s Hospitals: Improving Quality and Safety,” for attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measures performance for:

• Heart attacks
• Heart failure
• Pneumonia
• Surgical care
• Perinatal care

Lodi Health is one of only 1,043 hospitals out of more than 3,300 eligible hospitals in the United States to achieve the 2014 Top Performer distinction.

“Lodi Health is proud to be named a Top Performer as it recognized the knowledge, teamwork and dedication of our entire system,” said Lodi Health CEO Daniel Wolcott. “We understand what matters most to patients and families is the quality and care they receive, and we have made it top priority to improve patient outcomes through evidence-based care processes.”

The Top Performer program recognizes hospitals for improving performance on evidence-based interventions that increase the chances of healthy outcomes for patients with certain conditions.

Robotic-Assisted Surgery

daVinci-doctor-console-cartLodi Health now offers state-of-the-art technology with the installation of the da Vinci Surgery System at Lodi Memorial Hospital. Robotic-assisted general, gynecological and urological surgery means surgeons now have an alternative to traditional and laser surgery to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions and minimal down time. In addition, the single-site surgery option when possible allows patients to undergo a procedure, such as gall bladder surgery, with even less pain, no scarring and even faster recovery.

Advance Directive

Deciding Today About Your Health Care in the Future!

An Advance Directive is a set of written instructions expressing how you want future health care decisions made if you are unable to make them yourself. If you can't make treatment decisions, your doctor will ask your closest available relative or friend to help decide what is best for you.

Most of the time, that works. But sometimes everyone doesn't agree about what to do. That's why it is helpful to prepare in advance what you want to happen if you can't speak for yourself.

Instructions

Before you sign: Choose which sections you wish to include, and fill in the blanks. If you want to add specific instructions in your own words, you may do so. You should be 18 or older if you wish your advance directive to be legally binding. If you need more space, attach extra sheets and sign or initial at the bottom of each sheet.

After you sign: Have two witnesses sign, too, or acknowledged before a notary public.  If you are appointing a health care representative, sit down with him/her and talk about your wishes and goals for your care. Give copies to: (1) your health care representative, if you are appointing one; (2) your doctor and other health care providers, such as your hospital, home health care agency, or nursing facility; (3) close family members or friends. When you give them a copy of your advance directive, take some time to explain what it says and what your wishes are.

Health Care Appointment

Persistent Vegetative State

Persistent Vegetative State is when a person is unconscious with no hope of regaining consciousness even with medical treatment. The body may move and eyes may be open, but as far as anyone can tell, the person can't think or respond.

Terminally Ill

Being Terminally Ill means having an injury or illness that has no cure and from which doctors expect the person to die, even with medical treatment.

POLST: Physician orders for life-sustaining treatment

POLST is a form that gives seriously-ill patients more control over their end-of-life care, including medical treatment, extraordinary measures (including a ventilator and feeding tube) and CPR. Usually printed on bright pink paper, and signed by both a doctor and patient, POLST can prevent unwanted treatments and reduce patient and family suffering.
