The first leadership walk-round of 2015 was conducted January 27 at the Department of Surgery, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) El Paso by senior leaders. This was the first walk-round for TTUHSC El Paso President Richard Lange, M.D.
The walk-rounds throughout the Texas Tech clinics help promote a culture of safety and provide a one-on-one open dialogue between leadership, employees, and patients to identify current methods for a safe environment. They also encourage suggestions from staff and faculty on improving patient and employee safety.
President Lange; Associate Dean and VP for Finance and Administration Frank Stout; and Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs, Michael Romano, M.D., conducted the walk-round. Officials say they received positive feedback about the clinic from patients and useful suggestions from staff.
