The overall quality approach consists of coordinating and harmonizing practices by sharing knowledge and skills in all the hospital's areas of expertise.
The Coordination of the Quality, Safety and Environment is ensured by a body formed of the General Director, the Quality Director, the Director of Medical Affairs and the Director of Nursing.
This body verifies the collection of relevant and validated data in order to have indicators covering the allocated resources and structures, the care and support processes and the results of clinical and non-clinical domains, while respecting the confidentiality of personal data.
Data collection and analysis are carried out by commissions composed of multidisciplinary qualified people in each of the areas of Quality, Safety and Environment protection.
These commissions develop quality and patient safety management programs and plans.
The return on experience conducted in the management review allows sharing results and data to prioritize quality and patient safety management projects, develop the strategic and operational plan and set up improvement processes.
In order to standardize their approach, the activities of the commissions, each in its area of expertise, can be summarized as follows:
Identify – Analyze – Organize – Promote Actions – Monitor and Evaluate
Around a hundred professionals, coordinators and members use their expertise to ensure excellent quality of service and optimal patient safety through the development of specific programs and indicators, valuable tools for constant improvement in the quality of care.
The Quality Department ensures all the elements relating to the coordination of the Quality, Safety and Environment committees.
