Quality & Safety
Dr. Scheurer describes MUSC’s commitment to Quality & Safety.
The Patient-and Family Advisory Councils (PFACs) are a partnership of family representatives and Hospital staff members working together to meet the needs of patients and families. The groups meet monthly to discuss issues such as patient-care, the environment, and healthcare policies and procedures. Families provide advice and are part of the decision making process. The main goal is to provide a collaborative environment that will enhance the experience for all patients and families at MUSC Health through patient-and family-centered care.
Membership is open to patients and families of MUSC Children’s Health and MUSC Health patients when openings occur. Patient and Family Advisory Council members must:
• Be committed to the welfare of all patients and families
• Be open to and accepting of diversity in opinions and ideas
• Attend monthly meetings
• Complete the online application process if you are interested in the Adult PFAC, Institute of Psychiatry PFAC, Adult Ambulatory PFAC, or Children’s Health PFAC.
