Ensuring patient safety is a vital step for any hospital in achieving the best clinical outcomes. The Apollo Quality Program aimed at standardization of processes for clinical handovers, medication safety, surgical safety, patient identification, verbal orders, hand washing compliance and falls prevention across the hospitals in the Group. Thirty-two hospitals across the Group in settings varying from rural to semi urban, urban and metropolitan implemented the program and over a period of one year demonstrated a visible improvement in the compliance to processes for patient safety translating into better patient safety statistics.
