November 7, 2017

COLUMBUS, Kan. – A Mercy Hospital Columbus co-worker is one of eight Kansas health care professionals recently recognized by the Certification Board for Professionals in Patient Safety (CBPPS) as certified professionals in patient safety (CPPS).

Gregg Holt, RN, BSN, CPPS, is manager of med/surg outpatient services and quality coordinator at Mercy Hospital Columbus. His certification is the culmination of a year-long professional development initiative that was made possible through scholarships from Kansas Healthcare Collaborative. He earned the credential in part by passing a rigorous, evidence-based examination that tests candidates on competency in patient safety science and application.

“Earning this credential attests to the professional competency in patient safety science and application,” said Tejal K. Gandhi, MD, MPH, CPPS, president of CBPPS. “This achievement demonstrates his expertise in this critical discipline and positions him among those committed to and leading patient safety work.”
