2020 was a tough year, yet it highlighted the importance of a solid and established safety culture within Healthcare Institutions.
As the leadership of Cairo University Hospitals we have decided that it was high time to focus on the implementation of patient safety requirements .
The executive office for healthcare quality and development of Cairo University Hospitals under the supervision of CUH leadership planned for the initiative of SAFE HOSPITAL AWARD .
It was launched February 2021 by creating a regular auditing system focusing on the most important items of patient safety and environmental safety issued by the Joint Commission International and the Egyptan General authority for healtcare accreditation & regulation .
All hospitals of CUH Campus (14 hospitals )were included in the journey towards safety with the final award announcement day set on the 17th of September.
Our internal auditors launched 3 rounds for each of 14 hospitals with 2 months interval between rounds in order to assess the base line level , to communicate with hospital managers and process owners to work on defects and to assess improvement of performance , and enforcement of the culture of safety .
The analysis of the SAFE HOSPITAL AWARD results was targeted to be finalized during the Patient Safety Week (11th – 17th ) of September 2021 so that the results could be officially announced on the 17th of September which is the World Patient Safety Day .
The awards are categorized as gold , silver and bronze for hospitals and certificates of recognition will be given to efficient staff members.
It is the decision of CUH Leadership to establish the Safe Hospital Award as a yearly event on the 17th of September.
And on 17 th of September we will light the dome of hospital adminstration with orange and also the obstetric and gynecology hospital
