How to provide quality care

  • Posted On : 5/20/2020 12:07 PM

Advancement in technology has improved the quality of care in many health facilities across the globe. However, some facilities still struggle to provide rapid care that is needed in emergency cases. For instance, many pregnant women are giving birth in health care facilities. Unfortunately, many of these women experience birth complications. Improving the quality of care is vital to a patient's safety.

Quality of care, as defined by the World Health Organization, is the extent to which health care services are provided to patients to improve the desired health outcome. Quality healthcare aims to accomplish the following:

  • Safety: providing care that minimizes harm, medical errors, and risk to patients.
  • Real-time: avoiding and reducing delays that may cause harm to a patient.
  • Effectiveness: patients are only provided with care that is beneficial to them based on scientific knowledge.
  • Equitability: the quality of healthcare provided does not differ according to a person's characteristics such as ethnicity or gender.
  • Efficiency: maximizing the use of resources and avoiding waste.
  • Patient-focused: the healthcare provided takes into account the patient's preferences.

Why is quality in healthcare important?

Improving the quality of care is vital in enhancing the level of performance. If a healthcare institution is stuck with traditional concepts, they will not generate better health outcomes. A new level of performance can be attained if health care institutions adopt new concepts such as medical storage solutions and the implementation of a nurse server cabinet in each room. FlowCARE will design and fabricate storage solutions that are fit for any healthcare environment. These storage solutions provide flexibility, efficiency and time savings, and enhance the security of products.

Health care facilities need to replace inefficient storage systems with new inventions like sterile storage drawers. Nurses and health care practitioners will have easy access to medical equipment, which prevents delays. Quality of care is also comprised of highly motivated and competent healthcare professionals. Meanwhile, physical resources such as water, medical equipment, and supplies also need to be readily available to improve quality care.

A great way to be sure that patients are receiving the best care possible is to ensure that all supplies, medications and materials are easily accessible by the medical staff that is treating them. This is because the quicker they can treat the patient, the more likely the treatment is to be successful. So, what is the best way to keep everything close without infringing on valuable space? 

The implementation of a nurse server cabinet in each patient room is an excellent way to not only be as organized as possible but to ensure that nurses and healthcare professionals can get to what they need as quickly as possible. 

A nurse server cabinet can be stocked from both sides, which means that there will be less time spent going in and out of patient rooms for unnecessary reasons. This means that the patients will have less exposure to outside germs and bacteria than necessary. The less frequent a nurse enters the room, the less likely germs are to be carried into the patient.
