EYE CARE HOSPITAL (ECO) ACCREDITATION – PROJECT By: Mr. .. of Eye Care Standards + Guide book (From NABH office) Get accustomed to the. hospitals under 50 beds, and the other using NABH standards for hospitals This Guidebook for Pre-Accreditation Entry-Level Standards for SHCOs contains.

Examine the document Self explanatory The instructions shall be in manner that the patient can easily understand and avoid use of medical terms e. Self explanatory. The organization protects patient and family rights during care Objective Elements a. Patient and family rights are documented Interpretation Hospital should respect patients rights. All the rights of the patients should be displayed in the form of a citizens charter which should also give information of the charges and grievance redressal mechanism. Patients and families are informed of their rights in a format and language that they can understand c. The organizations leaders protect patients rights d. Staff is aware of their responsibility in protecting patients rights e. Where patients rights have been infringed upon, management must keep records of such violations, as also a record of the consequences, e.

All the staff handling these activities should be oriented to the applicable policies and procedures. Documented policies and procedures guide the transfer-in of patients to the organisation. This shall address both planned and unplanned transfers.

For unplanned transfers and in case of suspected unstable patients, the organisation could send a suitably trained person with the ambulance. However, this shall be guided by the information received by the organisation.

Patients needing transfer include those who have come to the emergency but need to be transferred to another organisation or those already admitted but who now require care in another organisation.

It also includes patients being shifted for diagnostic tests. The organisation shall define who is an unstable patient. This shall be defined based on physiological criteria. The documented procedure should address the methodology for safe transfer of the patient in a life-threatening situation like those who are on ventilator to another organisation.

There should be availability of an appropriate ambulance fitted withlife support facilities and accompanied by trained personnel. Patients not in a life threatening situation stable should also be transported in a safe manner.

Further, the staff identified should be aware of the transfer procedure. A doctor should accompany an unstable patient. The organisation gives a summary of patients condition and the treatment given. This shall also include patients being transferred for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. In case of a patient being discharged from the organisation, a discharge summary is given to all patients including those patients going against medical advice. A copy of the same shall be retained by the organisation.

The organisation defines and documents the content of the initial assessment for the outpatients, in-patients and emergency patients. The organisation shall have a format using which a standardised initial assessment of patients is done in the OPD, emergency and in-patients.

The initial assessment could be standardised across the hospital or it could be modified depending on the need of the department. However, it shall be the same in that particular area, e. In emergency department, this shall include recording the vital parameters. The format shall be designed to ensure that the laid-down parameters are captured.

Every initial assessment shall contain the presenting complaints, vital signs and salient examination findings especially of the system concerned. This shall incorporate initial assessment by doctors and nursing staff in case of in-patients.

Abridged documentation may be used for day care as appropriate. The organisation determines who can perform the initial assessment. The assessment could be done by various categories of staff. The organisation determines who can do what assessment and it should be the same across the organisation.

Assessments are performed by each discipline within its scope of practice, registration and applicable laws and regulations. The organisation defines the time frame within which the initial assessment is completed based on patients needs. The time frame shall be from the time that the patient has registered or it is the arrival time to the emergency department till the time that the initial assessment is documented by the medical and nursing team.

Patients may be assessed earlier depending upon the clinical need. The initial assessment for in-patients is documented within 24 hours or earlier as per the patients condition, as defined in the organisations policy. This should cover history, examination including vital signs and documentation of any drug allergies. It should mention the provisional diagnosis.

For an admitted patient, if a detailed assessment has been done earlier either in OPD or emergency on the same day , it need not be written in detail again. Note that the maximum time allowed for documentation is 24 hours. However, the organisation shall define and document the appropriate time depending on the patients condition and the scope of its services. Initial assessment of in-patients includes nursing assessment which is done at the time of admission and documented. This shall identify the nursing needs and also help identify any special needs of the patient.

It shall be completed within a defined time frame. This assessment shall help in identifying the nursing needs of the patient. A checklist or template could be used for the same. Initial assessment includes screening for nutritional needs. This is only a screening for nutritional needs and not a complete assessment. Nutritional screening shall be done for all patients including OP and IP for relevant parameters.

Nutritional screening could result in a need for a detailed nutritional assessment which shall be done wherever necessary. The initial assessment results in a documented care plan. This shall be documented by the treating doctor or by a member of his team in the patient record. Care plan is prepared and documented based on initial assessment and result of diagnostic tests if available.

The care plan shall be subject to modifications or changes at reassessments. The care plan reflects desired results of the treatment, care or service. The care plan is countersigned by the clinician in-charge of the patient within 24 hours.

The treatment of the patient could be initiated by a junior doctor but the same should be countersigned and authorised by the treating doctor within 24 hours.

The clinician in charge implies the treating doctor. Patients are reassessed at appropriate intervals. After the initial assessment, the patient is reassessed periodically and this is documented in the case sheet. The frequency may be different for different areas based on the setting and the patient's condition, e. Reassessments shall also be done in response to significant changes in patients condition. Every patient shall be reassessed at least once every day by the treating doctor.

Out-patients are informed of their next follow-up, where appropriate. This may not be applicable in cases where patient has come for just an opinion or the patients condition does not warrant repeat visits. For in-patients during reassessment the care plan is monitored and modified, where found necessary. The care plan shall be dynamic and modified where necessary by the treating doctor according to the patients condition.

The changing care plan is documented in the medical record. This could be evidenced in different sections such as progress notes, doctors orders or medication charts. Staff involved in direct clinical care document reassessments. Actions taken under reassessment are documented. The staff could be the treating doctor or any member of the team as per their domain of responsibility of care. At a minimum, the documentation shall include vitals, systemic examination findings and medication orders.

The nursing staff can document patients vitals. Only phrases like patient well; condition better would not be acceptable. Patients are reassessed to determine their response to treatment and to plan further treatment or discharge. The organisation lays down guidelines and implements processes to identify early warning signs of change or deterioration in clinical conditions for initiating prompt intervention. The organisation trains the staff to use defined physiological parameters to identify clinical deterioration.

The organisation has a mechanism whereby this information is made available to appropriate medical personnel to initiate prompt and appropriate actions. Scope of the laboratory services commensurate to the services provided by the organisation. The organisation should ensure availability of laboratory services commensurate with the healthcare services offered by it. The organisation shall ensure that these services are available round the clock and patient care does not suffer.

Reports should not get delayed due to lack of adequate manpower including personnel authorised to report results. The staff employed in the lab should be suitably qualified appropriate degree and trained to carry out the tests.

Pathologist, microbiologist and biochemist supervise the staff. Documented procedures guide ordering of tests, collection, identification, handling, safe transportation, processing and disposal of specimens. The organisation has documented procedures for ordering, collection, identification, handling, safe transportation, processing, and disposal of specimens, to ensure safety of the specimen till the tests and retests if required are completed observing standard and special precautions.

The organisation shall ensure that the unique identification number is used for identification of the patient. In addition, it could use another number for example, lab number to identify the sample.

The disposal of waste shall be as per the statutory requirements Bio-medical waste management and handling rules.

Laboratory results are available within a defined time frame. The organisation shall define the turnaround time for all tests. The organisation should ensure availability of adequate staff, materials and. The turnaround time could be different for different tests and could be decided based on the nature of test, criticality of test and urgency of test result as desired by the treating doctor.

Critical results are intimated immediately to the personnel concerned. The laboratory shall establish its biological reference intervals for different tests. The laboratory shall establish and document critical limits for tests which require immediate attention for patient management and the same shall be documented. The critical test results shall be communicated to the personnel concerned and this shall be documented.

This shall include critical results of outsourced investigations. If it is not practical to establish the biological reference interval for a particular analysis the laboratory should carefully evaluate the published data for its own reference intervals.

Relevant staff are made aware and trained on the critical values and its reporting process through suitable mechanism. Results are reported in a standardised manner. At a minimum, the report shall include the name of the organisation or in case of outsourced laboratory, the name of the same , the patients name, the unique identification number, reference range of the test where applicable and the name and signature of the person reporting the test result.

A methodology to check the performance of service rendered by the outsourced laboratory, as per the requirements of the organisation. The laboratory quality assurance programme is documented.

The organisation has a documented quality assurance programme. Quality assurance includes internal quality control, external quality assurance, pre-analytic phase, test standardisation, post-analytic phase, management and organisation.

The laboratory shall participate in external quality assurance programme when available. When such programmes are not available, the laboratory could exchange samples with another laboratory for purposes of peer comparison. There is a mechanism to obtain feedbacks from various stakeholders to evaluate the laboratory services. Verification of an analytical procedure is the demonstration that a laboratory is capable of replicating with an acceptable level of performance a standard method.

Verification of Standard method performance can be defined for two situations: The first use of a standard method within the laboratory. Verification under conditions of use is demonstrated by meeting the specifications established for that method as well as a demonstration of accuracy and precision or other method parameters for that method. Eg If the Laboratory introduces a new methodology of testing Blood Glucose levels, in addition to meeting the specifications established by that particular method recommended by the manufacturer in case of a commercial kit , it should also demonstrate accuracy and precision by alternate established methods either within the laboratory or from outside laboratory.

Validation of method: Non-standard and laboratory-developed methods need method validation. Methods requiring validation include: Modified official methods In-house developed methods Methods extended to a component, analysis or matrix not previously tested or included in validation Changes involving new technology or automation Verification usually includes accuracy, precision and linearity. Validation in addition includes sensitivity and specificity.

This also holds true for any laboratory-developed methods. The programme addresses surveillance of test results.

Equipment required to conduct these tests including suitable backup internal or external. Reports should not get delayed due to lack of adequate equipment or manpower including personnel authorised to report results.

Adequately qualified and trained personnel perform, supervise and interpret the investigations. AERB guidelines could be used as a reference document for radiation based imaging.

Documented policies and procedures exist to ensure correct identification and safe and timely transportation of patients to and from the imaging services. The aim is to ensure patient identification at all times so that correct procedure is carried out for a patient and correct report is handed over. Procedure addresses the safe and timely transportation to and from the imaging services.

This should also address transfer of unstable patients. Imaging results are available within a defined timeframe. The organisation shall document turnaround time of imaging results for all modalities. The organisation shall monitor the waiting times, time taken to perform the tests and time taken to prepare the reports of the tests for all modalities; for in-patient, outpatient and emergency. The defined timeframes could be different for different type of tests and could be decided on the basis of the nature of the test, modality, and criticality of the test and the urgency of the test result as required by the treating doctor.

The organisation shall define and document the critical results which require immediate attention of clinician, e. At a minimum, the report shall include the name of the hospital or in case of outsourced imaging centre, the name of the same , the patients name, the unique identification number, and the name and signature of the person reporting the test result. In case of tele-radiology, there shall be the name of the reporting doctor and a remark to that effect.

It should also include the name of the reporting organisation if outsourced to an organisation. The report should be in prevailing context taking into account the clinical details and results of any previous imaging.

These could include recall for errors at all levels. Whenever there is a recall of a particular report, withdrawal from clinical areas, medical records, RIS and HIS should be ensured. Imaging tests not available in the organisation are outsourced to organisation s based on their quality assurance system. The quality assurance programme for imaging services is documented. The QA programme for imaging should involve all stakeholders.

It should be a comprehensive programme addressing equipment QA, Protocols, safety, education and surveillance. In addition, AERB requirement will have to be met. Some examples for QA of radiation equipment include congruence of optical and radiation field, focal spot size, output consistency, leakage rate, etc.

A peer review system will be in place to review the reports and outcomes of interventional procedures performed. This shall be done in a structured manner, and the sample size, periodicity for each modality shall be defined. The results of such reviews shall be discussed with all stake holders in "discrepancy meetings" and the same shall be documented.

The peer review can be performed by the head of department or by a group of peers, with or without blinding of the original reports. Discrepancies in the reports will be graded on the. The purpose is to prevent errors in future, and continuous quality improvement rather than computation or error rates of the individuals. Structured peer review of the imaging protocols and procedures shall be periodically performed and they should be modified in accordance of the current best practices.

Surveillance of the quality of images, and completeness of the imaging procedures should be performed to ensure that they are appropriate for the indications for which the imaging has been performed. For example: CT for acute renal colic requires only a low dose non-contrast CT and a multiphase CT urography would expose the patient to unnecessary radiation and contrast media injection; while for Obstructive uropathy with urosepsis will require it to be tailored for identifying abscesses, and hence would be multiphase CT.

A system is in place to ensure the appropriateness of the investigations and procedures for the clinical indication. The investigation orders are screened prior to performing of the imaging or interventional procedure to ensure that they are appropriate investigation as per current best practice guidelines and patient safety based on for the clinical indication, otherwise alternate investigations are offered in consultation with the treating doctor.

Mammography for a lactating 25 yrs old lady with fever and a lump is inappropriate, and will never reveal the breast abscess; Ultrasound scan of the breast will be the best investigation. Quality Assurance including calibration and maintenance of all equipment will be performed as per AERB guidelines, as well as the manufacturer's recommendations and records of the same shall be maintained.

All such activities will be performed by persons who are appropriately trained and certified by the regulatory authorities for this purpose.
