Nepal Mediciti Hospital has been accredited by the National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers.
Professor Harish Nadkarmi, chief executive officer of National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers (NABH), handed over the accreditation certificate to Samata Prasad, managing director of Nepal Mediciti Hospital, at a programme in Kathmandu on Wednesday evening.
Addressing the programme, Upendra Mahato, chairman of Nepal Mediciti Hospital, said it was an achievement for the hospital to have received the accreditation in such a short span of time.
“We have a long way to go. We have a lot more to do to maintain the standard and the accreditation as we strive to provide quality health care services,” said Mahato.
“We are ready to make our contributions to develop Nepal as an international hub for health care services.”
The hospital administration claimed that it is the first and only hospital in the country to be accredited with the new benchmark in quality healthcare services.
NABH is a constituent board of Quality Council of India, an Indian government undertaking that emphasises on adherence to quality standards. It was set up to establish and operate accreditation programmes for healthcare organisations, by providing them a framework of quality assurance and quality improvement for healthcare organisations.
The standards focus on all aspects of service delivery like patients’ rights and education, infection control practices, trained and experienced staff, infrastructure, environment safety, processes and control among many other statutory and regulatory compliances.
Manita Pokhrel, media coordinator at Mediciti, said that the NABH team had assessed the hospital’s overall service delivery and patients safety among others in the months of September and October last year.
