Each year, LHA Trust Funds presents the Safety Star Award to three healthcare facilities that have successfully implemented ideas or processes that have improved patient safety. The objective of the program is to acknowledge members of the LHA Trust Funds who are committed to quality and safety and who have developed innovative ideas that improve patient safety within their facility. Winners of the Safety Star Award receive recognition at the LHA Summer Conference, paid conference registration and expenses for the CEO/Administrator, $10,000 cash award and paid conference registration and expenses for a designee to attend American Society of Healthcare Risk Management (ASHRM).

Who is eligible?

Your facility must be a member of the Louisiana Hospital Association Malpractice and General Liability Trust Fund to be eligible for the award. You can find a complete list of qualification criteria in our downloadable handout below.
