    • RGCI&RC Healthcare personnel will extend their ethical responsibility of patient confidentiality, to hospital /organizational confidentiality by not disclosing any hospital related matters where patients can hear, other than as a professional response to general inquiries. RGCI&RC personnel should avoid making any public statements related to hospital /organizational confidential matters, leaving the responsibility for such statements to the senior member of the treating team/department.
    • The diet & nutrition related issues during the treatment are explained to patients as well as their families on daily dietician rounds. In addition to this, the patient/attendant can go to Dietary department any time for dietary counseling.
    • At the time of stay & discharge, dietary advice is to be given to the patients that need to be followed at home. Also, the patient/attendants can have a counseling session with the dietician wherein she will provide the Diet chart to the patient for better clarity.

    In line with the RGCI&RC quality policy, “to do things right first time and every time” the safety of our patients is of paramount importance.

To ensure the same patient safety devices (For example, grab bars, bed rails, sign posting, safety belts on stretchers and wheel chairs, alarms both visual and auditory where applicable, warning signs like radiation or biohazard, call bells, fire safety devices etc.) are installed across the organization and are inspected periodically.

The findings, corrective and preventive measures undertaken are discussed in safety committee and other appropriate forums.

    We monitor various key performance indicators for every department to systematically evaluate and continuously improve service performance. They are used to measure hospital performance viz:

  • Clinical efficiency (Clinical quality, evidence based practices, health improvement and outcomes for patients),
  • Operational efficiency (Resource utilization of services like reduction in waiting time)
  • Focus on Patient & employee safety (Patient & employee satisfaction)
