Quality Health

One would rarely call a hospital an ideal place to be in, simply because it’s associated with a feeling of uneasiness. A part of this uneasiness for most people comes from the uncertainty about a hospital and the quality of care that they deliver in reality.

This is where a ‘Quality Accreditation’ or ‘Certification’ by a reputed and independent third-party comes in. It then serves as a public recognition of the quality standards that a healthcare organization adheres to after they have thoroughly demonstrated it and have been assessed successfully under it.

 

What is NABH?

National Accreditation Board for Hospitals & Healthcare Providers (NABH) is a constituent board of Quality Council of India (QCI), the apex Body for Quality, Administration and Control by the Govt. of India.

Central Government Health Services, all Public and Private Health Insurance Companies, and the Ministry of Tourism view the NABH  as the ideal qualifying criteria for the selection or empanelment of hospitals.

With NABH recognized by the International Society for Quality in Healthcare (ISQua), it’s no wonder that renowned hospitals nation-wide are consistently striving to enlist themselves as a provider of quality care by getting approved by the NABH.

 

Why is NABH very important for the Healthcare sector?

It’s no easy feat for healthcare organizations to get the NABH  even at an entry level without strict adherence to a set of rules, regulations, systems and procedures, all designed to ensure patient safety, quality care, and patient satisfaction.

Hospitals with the NABH are assessed by an expert team comprising senior Doctors, Nurses and Hospital Administrators for patient safety and quality, every year.That’s right! Every single year! As consumers, this gives us assurance that the NABH certification isn’t a fad that healthcare providers can get their hands on once and for all, but a consistent working system that ensures quality care to patients.

 

Benefits of NABH to the people

By adhering to NABH standards and regulations, safety and optimal care of a patient is ensured. The following are some prime benefits:

  • Staff have to be well trained, as per their role in the hospital and equipped to respond to all types of emergencies
  • Hospital acquired infection is prevented using stringent control procedures
  • Cleanliness & hygiene are given paramount importance
  • You will never find a ‘Quack’ in an NABH hospital. Treatment is administered only by Doctors and Nurses whose qualifications and experience have been thoroughly checked.
