North Oaks Awarded Funds for Safety Grant

North Oaks Awarded Funds for Safety Grant

North Oaks Health System is one of 14 Louisiana healthcare facilities to receive the 2023 Funds for Safety grant sponsored by LHA Trust Funds. The annual grant program helps healthcare organizations fund their unique patient safety improvement initiatives.

North Oaks Health System’s Funds For Safety initiative is to implement an integrated technology in the Emergency Department that will assist clinical staff with appropriate alerts for high-fall-risk patients. Stretchers with integrated scales and 2-stage bed exit alarms will be used to decrease patient falls by monitoring pressure sensitivity.

LHA Trust Funds created the Funds for Safety grant program in 2012 to help fund its members’ initiatives to improve patient safety. Since its creation, the grant program has awarded more than $3.3 million to fund more than 100 unique projects for facilities in Louisiana.

For more than forty-six years, hospitals, healthcare facilities, and physician practices have relied upon the Louisiana Hospital Association (LHA) Trust Funds for medical professional liability, general liability, workers’ compensation, and cyber liability coverage. Our team of risk experts offers proactive patient safety and workplace safety programs, quality initiatives, risk management services, and regulatory guidance to assist in minimizing exposures.
