3 ways to make hospitals saferRead more
Diseases and illness thrive in a stressful, unhealthy environment; whereas all growth and recovery take place in a safe, caring zone. This fact is of prime importance for hospitals as it’s the place one needs to stay in, for treatment and recovery from an illness. Here are top ways to make hospitals safer.
- No more breeding infections
For making hospitals safer, it’s crucial that the hospital shouldn’t be a breeding ground for infections. HAI (hospital-acquired infections) can be prevented with a proper safety regime followed by the health care professionals by using sterilized medical equipment, clean masks, hand gloves, gowns and white coats. Also, care must be taken that the patient does not get infected due to contaminated bed sheets, food, water, and medications. Certain germs can survive up to 72 hours on common contaminated surfaces; hence, it is important to educate the cleaning staff to follow a stringent hygiene process including their own hand hygiene.
- Support of the latest equipment
If the hospital isn’t equipped with the latest technology, this renders the doctors incapable of diagnosing diseases, and this may create a list of problems for the patient. However, when the doctors have all the latest equipment, a hospital becomes a one-stop place for treating a host of diseases and the patients can rely on the hospital as well. Often, patients are left in a state of trauma at the end of surgery when the doctors, in the middle of an operation, are helpless as they don’t have the latest treatment devices to help their patients, which is the last thing hospitals would want.
- Build a good network
Treatment is only possible when a hospital has an excellent network of anesthetists, surgeons, etc. who can detect and cure the disease. It’s only possible if the hospital has kept a reliable team of experts that the patients can rely on for their treatment. Once a hospital can set up a team like this, they can come close to being a good hospital for sure.
Every hospital needs to follow all measures possible to make them safer for an overall treatment of its patients.
