Best Practice Spotlight Organization

Bluewater Health is proud to be a Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario Best Practice Spotlight Organization!

This prestigious honour means that the care provided here to patients and families is based on evidence and best practice. Evidence-based care is safe, quality care and Bluewater Health is committed to Best Practice - Every Time.

Bluewater Health began its partnership with the RNAO in 2012 and became designated as a Best Practice Spotlight Organization in 2015. As part of that work, we have implemented 11 of their internationally-recognized Best Practice Guidelines. These guidelines bridge research and practice, ensuring the most current available knowledge is being applied to the care provided to patients and their families. The guidelines also align with key performance themes in Bluewater Health's Strategic Plan and fit with our Patient and Family-Centred Care and Collaborative Model of Care philosophies.

Bluewater Health is committed to maintaining this status of Best Practice Spotlight Organization through continuous quality improvement and best practice guideline implementation, to create exemplary care and experience for Emily.
