Quality patient care takes lot of analysis, teaching

Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, February 14, 2008
Freya Gilbert is the director of quality and clinical practice at Hughston Orthopedic Hospital, recently promoted from the position of operating room analyst. That means she is responsible for finding ways to improve hospital quality and performance, which, in turn, can improve patient safety and outcomes. Gilbert took some time out to tell the Ledger-Enquirer about what her title exactly entails, how she moved up the ladder in health care and her experience teaching surgical nursing in Tbilisi, Georgia.
