CBAHI conducts 3rd health care institution orientation program

The Saudi Center for Accreditation of Health Facilities (CBAHI) organized the third version of the health care institution orientation program, which educated trainees on the national standards that should be applied to Saudi hospitals.
The two-day program was held at the medicine faculty at King Fahd Medical City in Riyadh with the participation of 176 health practitioners and medical specialists from different fields, in addition to representatives of 23 hospitals in the Kingdom.
The program accredited specialties including the leadership, quality management, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, laboratories, infection control, and enterprises’ security and safety. Candidates were selected based on their competence, capabilities and willingness to work with the hospital management to apply the national standards.
Dr. Salem Bin Abdullah Al-Wahabi, CBAHI director general, said: “The main objective behind applying the national standards is to shift the level of health care to the highest degree. This will help improve the health care quality. The health care institution orientation program is one of the vital programs that enrich the health providers with the basics of national standards that should be found in each health facility in the Kingdom.”
Participants showed full interest during the program’s sessions where the focus was on the CBAHI’s role in raising the level of health standards all over the Kingdom. Some participants praised the CBAHI’s efforts to upgrade the level of quality and safety by supporting the health facilities to strictly abide by the health accreditation.
Dr. Hamad Al-Salhi, director general assistant for planning and development, said: “The CBAHI aspires to create an idyllic climate enabling health care professionals, committed to the health accreditation standards, to delivering high-quality medical services.”
Dr. Majda Abdulhadi Shugdar, assistant general director for accreditation, stressed the importance of the field visits carried out by a team of qualified and credited surveyors.
The activities included in the visit aim at ensuring the availability of quality standards and patient safety through unified work mechanisms, approved by the hospital management and communicated to all workers and medical staff, especially doctors, nurses and other relevant personnel.
The visit intends to endorse the accuracy and completeness of documentation in the medical files as they are a unified means of communication for health practitioners.
