PFAC Presents at State Conference
Katie Percifield, Patient and Resident Experience, and CCH Volunteer Cody Friedlan, First National Bank of Gillette, were invited to attend a Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) panel discussion at the Wyoming Infection Prevention Conference in April. The discussion covered PFACs involvement in the quality improvement process—how to start one, what the benefits are, and the types of projects that we have worked on, among others. Thank you Katie and Cody for representing the PFAC at this event, and for what you do to enhance the patient care experience at CCH.
