NABH Accreditation: Upholding Quality and Safety in Healthcare

The National Accreditation Board for Hospitals & Healthcare Providers (NABH) is a pivotal entity in India, operating as a constituent board of Quality Council of India. Established with the mandate to set and maintain accreditation and quality standards at healthcare organisations, including hospitals, nursing homes, clinics and other healthcare facilities, NABH plays a crucial role in shaping the healthcare landscape in the country.

The fundamental objective of NABH accreditation is to ensure that healthcare providers adhere to predetermined benchmarks of quality and patient safety. Hospitals that successfully attain NABH accreditation are distinguished for their commitment to delivering high-quality care, maintaining safety standards and implementing best practices in healthcare management.

The accreditation process involves a meticulous evaluation of various facets of a healthcare facility, encompassing patient care, infrastructure, staff qualifications, safety protocols and operational processes. Hospitals are assessed on several parameters; the standards being divided between patient-centric and organisation-centric standards. To comply with them, a hospital needs to have a process-driven approach in all aspects of hospital activities – from registration, admission, pre-surgery and post-surgery protocols, discharge from the hospital to follow-up by the hospital after discharge. The governance aspects are also expected to be based on clear and transparent policies and protocols.

NABH accreditation is considered at par with most of the world’s leading hospital accreditations. Notably, less than 2% of hospitals in India (with 50+ beds) boast of this accreditation, underscoring its exclusivity and the rigorous standards it demands.

With the grace of Param Krupalu Dev and inspiration of Pujya Gurudevshri, Shrimad Rajchandra Hospital and Research Centre has achieved the NABH accreditation, which stands as a monumental milestone, highlighting the hospital’s focus on excellence in healthcare delivery. This achievement exemplifies its transformative impact on rural health and commitment to Patient Care First as the primary goal.
