Help Support DC Diaper Bank!

Did you know one in three families in our area struggles to afford diapers? To help meet that need, we’re continuing the Sibley partnership with the DC Diaper Bank to collect diapers. Through October, when the DC Diaper Bank celebrates its 7th birthday, please bring diapers for donation to the Building B welcome desk. There is a blue collection bin in this area where you may place your donations. Additionally, you can donate in Sibley’s name at dcdiaperbank.org. Thanks for helping us to support the DC Diaper Bank and families in our area!

New Universal Protocol Policy and Education Regarding Correct Patient, Procedure and Site

Sibley has instituted a new universal protocol, Policy 01-08-04: Correct Patient, Procedure and Site, that went into effect on June 23. Click here to read the policy, which describes the process to verify that each procedure, whether surgical or non-surgical, is performed on the correct patient, is the planned procedure and is done at the correct anatomical side and site. The policy includes procedures involving moderate sedation or anesthesia, regardless of geographical location (e.g., procedural area, operating room, bedside). The policy applies unless specific Joint Commission exception criteria apply, as defined in Section II, B of the policy.

All staff involved in invasive procedures, regardless of geographical location, are required to complete education on the policy in MyLearning by Monday, July 31. Please log into MyLearning (available in my.jh.edu) to complete the course.
