Palmdale Regional Medical Center Earns a Grade ‘B’ for Patient Safety in Leapfrog’s Fall 2019 Hospital Safety Score
Palmdale, CA - Palmdale Regional Medical Center has been recognized for its dedication to patient safety once again by being awarded a ‘B’ grade in the Fall 2019 Hospital Safety Score, which rates how well hospitals protect patients from preventable medical errors, injuries and infections within the hospital.

This ‘B’ grade is one of the most meaningful honors a hospital can achieve, and one of the most valuable indicators for patients looking for a safe place to receive care. The Hospital Safety Score is the gold standard rating for patient safety, compiled under the guidance of the nation’s leading patient safety experts and administered by The Leapfrog Group, a national, nonprofit hospital safety watchdog. The first and only hospital safety rating to be peer-reviewed in the Journal of Patient Safety, the Score is free to the public and designed to give consumers information they can use to protect themselves and their families when facing a hospital stay.

“Patient safety has always and will always be a top priority for us,” said Dick Allen, CEO. “Our hospital is a trusted member of this community and we will continue to strive for excellence in patient safety and hope to achieve an “A” on the next Safety Grade. Most importantly, we pledge to honor the trust of our patients by being transparent about our progress and working toward the highest possible standard of safety.”

Palmdale, CA – Recognized for its sound fiscal management policies and practices in district operations, Palmdale Water District (PWD) has been awarded the “District of Distinction – Platinum” accreditation for a second time from the Special District Leadership Foundation (SDLF).

“It’s a real honor to receive the ‘District of Distinction- Platinum’ accreditation,” General Manager Dennis D. LaMoreaux said. “PWD Directors and staff have taken extra initiatives to meet the SDLF’s requirements to ensure the public that its water agency is transparent and has sound financial management practices.”

According to California Special District Association’s Regional Public Affairs Representative Chris Palmer, PWD is one of 36 special districts out of more than 2,000 to receive the District of Distinction recognition, and only 12 have achieved the Platinum status. The accreditation is good through December 2021.

Classics Book Club to Discuss Formerly Banned Book
PALMDALE – The Palmdale City Library’s Classics Book Club will discuss the novel The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Czech author Milan Kundera, Monday, Nov. 25, at 7 pm, at the library, located at 700 E. Palmdale Blvd.

Originally published in 1984, two years after it was initially written, the novel is set during the so-called Prague Spring in 1968 Czechoslovakia and follows the lives of two men and two women, and their relationships with one another.

The Unbearable Lightness of Being, along with all other works by Kundera, who lived in exile in France since 1975, were censored and banned by the Communist government of Czechoslovakia until its downfall in 1989.

The Classics Book Club meets on the fourth Monday of every month from 7 to 8 pm. New members are welcome to attend.

City of Lancaster Reminds Residents to Avail Themselves of Sand Stockpile Locations During Storm Season
The City of Lancaster regards residents’ safety as a top priority. As such, the City reminds all residents that it provides six locations throughout the community for the public to obtain sand in order to fill sandbags in preparation for storm season. The sand stockpiles are located throughout Lancaster and are being made available to all Lancaster residents at no charge.

To collect sand at the identified stockpile locations, residents must bring their own tools and sandbags. All Antelope Valley fire stations are offering 25 unfilled sandbags per resident. In order to obtain the best results, residents are advised to avoid overfilling their sandbags. Leave enough room to allow for the bags to be tied off and easily stacked. Overfilling the bags may cause them to tear and not stack properly; which will in turn compromise sandbag barriers, thus allowing water to flow through openings.

The sand stockpile sites are shown below, as well as on the https://www.cityoflancasterca.org/home/showdocument?id=34425.
