As Director, you also serve on the Quality Improvement Committee for the hospital, as does the quality management coordinator, Jim Black. It is Mr. Black’s responsibility to record minutes at this meeting, prepare records for review and make meeting arrangements.
Finally, you are a member of the hospital’s Computerization Task Force.
