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.

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!

I have found Southern Evals, and more specifically Taylor Cottano to exhibit the highest level of professionalism, responsiveness, technical knowledge, and leading edge intellect in the clinical setting for infection control.

Southern EVALS was a tremendous asset to our team while transitioning to an RHC. They always went over and above to help us meet our goal in the shortest amount of time possible, even through a pandemic. They were always available for the many calls and made the accreditation process go as smooth and effortless as possible. They are a wealth of knowledge and if they don’t know the answer, they quickly research it and give updates in a timely manner. I highly recommend the Southern EVALS team.

It has been a pleasure working with Southern Evals. Southern Evals were very instrumental in the startup of our Rural Health Clinics as well as the opening of our new hospital Trinity Medical. The wealth of knowledge and customer service that has been displayed over the years has been impeccable. I would highly recommend this company for your healthcare needs.

Southern EVALS helped us successfully complete the FNR process then worked with our staff to develop and implement all document and workflows needed for state licensure and accreditation. They were there through both regulatory events where we passed the first time with flying colors.  They are extremely transparent and gave realistic timelines throughout the whole process.
