The Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) has again received another mile stone award of World Quality Commitment from the Business Initiative Directions (BID) International.

The award was conferred by BID New York in recognition of LASUTH’s commitment to Quality, Leadership, Technology and Innovation in its continuous search for Excellence.

This year’s BID quality award was presented at the Marriott Marquis Convention Hall in New York by the President of BID, Mr. Jose E. Prieto and was received by the Chief Medical Director of LASUTH, Prof Adewale Oke.

The award which was received in Diamond category symbolizes international recognition of leadership in quality of Lagos State University Teaching Hospital for following the path of quality to continuous quality improvement.

It would be recalled that BID England, BID Paris and BID Geneva International Quality Control IQC had earlier conferred the award on the hospital in November 2014, 2015 and 2016 respectively.

Since the inception of the hospital as a cottage hospital in 1955, even till it assumed the full status of a general hospital and the eventual upgrade in 2001 to a teaching hospital, it has being a “work-in-progress hospital and its policies are geared toward ensuring quality in patients’ care.

This, without any doubt led to radical changes that took place in the hospital in the last decade. The quality assurance service was engaged in LASUTH in 2010 and such service, has changed the modus operandi in all the wings of the hospital. The hospital has come to realize that best practice can only be achieved through adherence to daily practice of quality.

The existence of LASUTH Quality Assurance Department necessitated the establishment of a standard with continuous surveillance and monitoring in all the departments of the hospital to ensure best practice is in place.

LASUTH quality policy is to encourage process excellence and operational effectiveness in every department and unit through the implementation of standard operating procedures and key performance indicators.

While receiving the award on behalf of management and Staff of hospital, the Chief Medical Director, Professor Wale Oke wholeheartedly thanked the BID, the organizer of WQC award, for checking on LASUTH, and equally choosing the institution to receive this prestigious award while also promising that LASUTH shall continue to uphold quality through best practice.
