QUALITY ASSURANCE


Quality health care delivery is delivering the right care, to the right patient, in the right manner, in the right place, at the right time, all the time. It is important for organizations like LASUTH to understand the six dimensions of quality health care, which are stated below in order to get it right. The six dimensions of quality health care are:-

Safety (no needless death): - Are patient safe in the hospital? Is death rate high?
Effectiveness (no needless pain or suffering): - Making sure the patient doesn’t go back the same way they came. Ask questions like, have we been able to alleviate the pain or suffering of our patients?
 Patient Centeredness (no helplessness in those served): - Have we been able to render the necessary help required?
 Timeliness (no unnecessary waiting): - Has the hospital been able to curb long waiting time?
 Efficiency (no waste): - Doctors should prescribe only the necessary drugs. Ask questions like, have we been able to solve the issues of poly-pharmacy in the hospital?
 Equity (no one is left out): - To get the quality healthcare required, Team spirit must be embraced.

DEPARTMENTAL ACTIVITIES
Our departmental goal is to ensure excellent health care delivery to our teeming patients. We are to monitor the processes and procedures of activities in different departments and also set up a quality improvement plan which includes trainings and workshops.

For effectiveness, we put up a quality assurance team {Quality Champions) with a representation from various departments in LASUTH. We put up a roster for monitoring, evaluation and training using a carefully designed monitoring and evaluation survey forms for assessment. This has been a huge success because we were able to identify some gaps responsible for lack of satisfaction in the services rendered to our patients. Also, we were able to identify the poor attitude of some staff towards the patients.
