Hospital Safety Consulting

Recently Patient Safety Goals have undergone extensive review.  For instance Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) has revised the National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG).  We will help the hospitals continuously improve and comply with NPSGs as part of Standards Improvement Initiative (SII) through our well researched software portal’s information integration. 

It is reported that over 100,000 hospital deaths occur annually from medical errors. There also are additional charges such errors bring to the tune of $40 billion of which preventable errors contribute to some $16 billion. A comprehensive solution to patient safety has always been elusive while there have been sincere efforts to curb albeit in a piecemeal manner.

This is partly due to absence of standard, bench mark performance parameters. USP 797 regulation is a far reaching regulation with a wide range of pharmacy policies and procedures. It is designed to reduce infections transmitted through pharmaceutical products and also to protect staff exposed to pharmaceuticals.

Our services also include emergency management, worker safety, fire protection, environmental regulations, and much more. We can also help you in design, construction and operation of a new hospital or any expansion plans.
Safety from Disasters -  It is imperative to ensure  that all new hospitals are built with a level of resilience that strengthens their capacity to remain functional in disaster situations and implement mitigation measures to reinforce existing health facilities, particularly those providing primary health care.

Hospitals represent an enormous investment for any country. Destruction or loss of functionality pose a major economic burden. Direct economic losses involve more than the structure: the cost of non-structural elements can be higher than the structure itself.

Disasters produce an intensive demand for health services. In addition to treating disaster victims, hospitals must quickly resume treatment of everyday emergencies and routine care. The hospital network  are  integral components of a nation’s public health system. The long-term impact of losing these services is difficult to quantify and therefore may be overlooked. Disaster-resilient hospitals must be able to protect the lives of patients and staff and continue to function.
