Quality Team

Providing safe, quality care remains a focus for UNM Health System. Every department at University of New Mexico Hospital has a patient safety officer on staff, and a dedicated team coordinates quality and safety initiatives. Dozens of employees work to ensure that data is collected, monitored and acted upon.

At UNM Sandoval Regional Medical Center, staffers are encouraged to bring up quality and safety concerns and help solve them. Staff and leadership regularly receive quality data and discuss safety measures to help keep you as well as possible. Our Zero Harm Committee provides oversight and process improvement.
