Dustin Thiels / Director of Nursing

Longleaf Behavioral Health Hospital

After receiving help from the Infection Control Consultant, I feel more confident as a new Infection Preventionist. I feel they have helped me build a foundation with good infection control practices at our facility.


-Shannon Horath / Infection Preventionist

Richland Parish Hospital

Southern Evals is an expert in Infection Control – Taylor Cottano assisted our brand new behavioral health hospital in preparation for our Joint Commission Initial Accreditation, during the COVID-19 pandemic. TJC was very impressed with the infection control practices we had in place and complimented our infection control plan. We received our TJC initial accreditation with very minimal citations and of note, we had no conditional findings.  Southern Evals continues to be a part of our team, assisting our Infection Control Nurse on all hospital initiatives, participates in our Quality Committee and is an excellent resource for our team. I highly recommend Taylor and the Southern Evals team to inpatient providers – their knowledge, responsiveness and can do attitudes are a great asset to the team!
