PUDUCHERRY: In an attempt to achieve its goal of securing accreditation from the National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Health care Providers (NABH), JIPMER conducted a two-day work shop here on Saturday and Sunday. The workshop saw eminent professionals with experience in NABH and quality control interacting extensively with employees on the nuances and process of accreditation.
Towards that end, JIPMER is aiming to permanently establish the necessary protocols and standard operating procedures.
The NABH standard consists of stringent 600 plus objective elements, divided between patient centred and organisation centred parameters. To meet the required standards, JIPMER Quality Council has embarked on a process driven approach to streamline the entire hospital and governance aspects based on clear and transparent policies and protocols.
According to an official release, JIPMER Director Dr S C Parija stated that process of NABH accreditation is a time bound process which is expected to be completed in 9 to 12 months. JIPMER provides advanced health care facilities in all broad specialties and super specialties. With over 2,000 beds and 7,000 outpatient visits per day, JIPMER caters to the need of all strata of society.
