As employees of Abbeville General Hospital, we are accountable for ensuring that patients’ rights are maintained and that all patients receive the same level of quality care.
To attract and maintain competent staff, emphasis should be placed on retention and recognition of activities in addition to ongoing recruitment efforts.
