MCH&HS Earns Designation 

Memorial Community Hospital and Health System (MCH&HS) has earned the designation of a Safe Sleep Hospital Champion as part of a Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services initiative.

Jackie Moline, maternal/infant health program coordinator, division of public health, presented a certificate to the hospital Wednesday morning.

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services worked with the Nebraska Hospital Association, the Nebraska Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Nebraska Perinatal Quality Improvement Collaborative to launch the Nebraska Safe Sleep Hospital Campaign. The campaign provides evidence-based education to parents of newborns as well as birthing hospital staff.

"Providing consistent training and education on safe sleep for all hospital personnel caring for children under a year old ensures the same safe sleep message is shared with parents of more than 26,000 babies born in Nebraska every year," Moline said. "An increase in safe sleep awareness will result in more babies sleeping in safe environments and reaching their first birthday."
To earn the designation, MCH&HS took the Safe Sleep Campaign pledge, developed a Safe Sleep policy, educated hospital personnel on Safe Sleep recommendations and practices and provided evidence-based Safe Sleep education.

"MCH recognizes the importance of quality and patient safety," said Angie Livingston, MCH&HS inpatient lead, who accepted the certificate on behalf of the hospital.

MCH&HS is the 37th hospital — out of 38 — to earn the designation since September. Ten other hospitals have pledged to become Hospital Champions.
