Flaget Memorial Earns Quality Respiratory Care Recognition

Bardstown, KY

Flaget Memorial Hospital earned Quality Respiratory Care Recognition for the second year in a row from the American Association for Respiratory Care. Flaget is one of about 700 hospitals, or approximately 15% of U.S. hospitals, to receive the award. Hospitals that receive the designation meet strict safety and quality standards in respiratory care: for example, the hospital must use efficiency and quality metrics to compare the performance of its respiratory department with others.
