NABH accreditation should be mandatory for medical college hospitals

The Medical Council of India (MCI) should direct all the medical colleges to get their hospitals accredited by the NABH, according to Dr Gayatri Vyas Mahindroo, Director, National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers (NABH).

“We have requested the MCI that the medical college hospitals should be accredited and we are hoping it is done soon. The MCI has already agreed in principle,” Dr Mahindroo told AalaTimes.
“We think this is important because this will ensure that doctors become quality conscious during their formative days and become a change agent in bringing a new kind of patient-friendly culture when they join a healthcare centre after their graduation,” she said.
Dr Mahindroo further said, “There should also be a course module for quality healthcare and patient safety in medical colleges. Today, the challenge is not about technology; it’s about mindset and safety culture and we need to inculcate this mindset and safety culture during the training period itself.”
