JCI Patient Safety Goals
Many hospitals around the world face undesired events, such as death, loss of limb (reversible or irreversible) and mental disorders, due to adverse events such as medication errors, incorrect-site or organ surgeries, falls from bed, incompatible blood transfusion reactions and suicide cases. Accreditations standards survey the extent patient- and organization-centered standards are met in hospitals based on the view “primum non nocere".
Medical Park Hospitals serve patients in line with the principle “eliminate adverse events that our patients may face before they occur" on the road we departed with the philosophy “Health for Everybody".
Medical Park Hospitals shot a movie, wherein doctors and nurses of Göztepe Hospital Complex performed, for the first time in Turkey to emphasize JCI Patient Safety Goals in order to create the patient safety culture. This movie is watched for education by all employees of the hospitals operated by the group.
Pursuant to the “Patient Safety Culture" project put into practice in 2013, all employees are educated and survey studies verified that level of knowledge is increased by efforts oriented to consolidate the corporate culture on patient safety. Moreover, we ensured sustainability of Patient Safety Culture by making it a part of the Quality Plan.
