RNAO Best Practice Spotlight Organization®

In 2021, HGMH was selected through an international competitive process as a pre-designate Best Practice Spotlight Organization (BPSO) through the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario (RNAO).  RNAO develops and promotes the use of evidence-based best practices – interventions proven to improve health outcomes. Although HGMH staff have long followed best practices when caring for patients, new practices emerge regularly, and must be evaluated and standardized. Over three years, in partnership with RNAO, HGMH is implementing and evaluating best practices related to five areas to earn the official BPSO designation: 

By putting the latest research into practice, reducing variation in care and eliminating interventions that have little effect, the initiative promises to further improve the quality of care that we deliver to patients. Visit the RNAO BPSO initiative website for more information.

Accomplishments at HGMH to Date


Official Launch

HGMH officially launched their RNAO BPSO pre-designation status by engaging all staff in a curling-themed, fun-filled day.  Curling is a game of strategy where all players are equally important in the accomplishment of targets and goals… and so is this journey.  Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCKON6o9KG4
