Safety and Precautions
At ONP, we believe every patient who walks through our doors has the right to a safe treatment experience. We go the extra mile in ensuring that they receive care based on the highest safety standards at par with the best across the world. We have equipped ourselves with training, technology and protocols that prevent and reduce risks, and are timely, integrated and efficient.
By constantly understanding our patient’s needs, and involving them, we have devised a set of initiatives based on international standards of safety protocols that help us deliver a safe as well as high quality treatment experience to every patient, every single day, every single time. To ensure successful implementation of our patient safety strategies, we do periodical reviews and audits for each of these processes and protocols and we also invest considerable amount of time and effort in training our employees extensively, all the while keeping the feedback from patients and doctors as the key driver.
Global Standard Operating Procedures
We follow advanced standard operating procedures laid down by top global health advisory bodies including WHO, NHS, UK & RCOG, UK. These procedures help us in achieving a unique level of patient care that is focused, safe and replicable. In fact, we have a reputation for ‘zero’ medical and surgical mishaps.
Enhanced Surgical Safety
At ONP, we focus on reducing infections, complications and failures during the surgical procedures. Our surgeons and sta use tools such as surgical safety checklist to keep track of vital pre & post-operative parameters to keep our patients safe and out of danger.
We are equipped with separate NICUs for inborn and outborn babies with dedicated staff for each. The entire staff is trained to adhere to transmission-based precautions and safety protocols.
We ensure each baby has his/her own medical equipment including stethoscope, sanitiser, thermometer, incubators etc. to prevent infections. Any baby with suspected infection is placed in an incubator with 1:1 care irrespective of the baby’s condition. These eorts have led to us achieving less than 1% newborn mortality.
Infection control is a top priority for us. We ensure near 0% infection rate across all our hospitals. From proper hand hygiene to appropriate disposal of biomedical waste to periodical sterilisation of equipment and surveillance of high-risk patient areas, we operate with precision and commitment.
Wrong drug administration is an error that can be fatal. At ONP, we give highest priority to drug handling and dosage regimen for the safety of our patients. With appropriate labelling, nomenclature and storage, we ensure administration of right medication every single time.
For personalised and accurate delivery of care we use the right tools for patient identification. With appropriate ID tags and double checks at every step, we assure a safe and seamless treatment journey for the patient.
Blood that we procure and store for our patients is fully safe and infection free. We achieve this by following stringent quality practices.
We are the fastest among the single speciality Women & Children’s hospitals to achieve NABH accreditation for our centres.
Well quailed, Skilled and motivated nurses can have a positive impact on the quality of care patients receive. We, at ONP, make sure our nurses receive adequate support to deliver safe and high-quality care.
Advanced medical equipment is highly critical for best patient outcomes. We regularly monitor all our equipment and calibrate them, so that they function accurately at all times. We do this by following globally recognised safety guidelines for device maintenance
At ONP, it’s not just about the quality of care, it is also about the preparedness to oer that quality when it is needed the most. Our dedicated, well-trained teams are always ready for emergencies. We conduct regular mock drills to train our sta to be fully equipped for such challenges.
