In recognition of her outstanding commitment and unwavering performance to quality and excellence, in healthcare delivery, the Business Initiative Directors (BID) International has honoured the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), with the award of World Quality Commitment.
The award, which was conferred on the tertiary hospital by BID Geneva, was the third in three years, as BID England and BID Paris International Quality Control IQC had earlier given the award to the hospital in November 2014 and 2015 respectively.
Receiving the award on behalf of management and the entire staff of the hospital, the Chief Medical Director, Professor Wale Oke, wholeheartedly appreciated BID, the organizer of WQC award, for the choice of LASUTH for the prestigious award, assuring them that LASUTH will continue to uphold quality through best practice.
According to the report published on www.lasuth.org.ng, the existence of LASUTH Quality Assurance Department necessitated the establishment of a standard with continuous surveillance and monitoring in all the departments of the hospital to ensure best practice is in place.
It further explained that “LASUTH quality policy is to encourage process excellence and operational effectiveness in every department and unit through the implementation of standard operating procedures and key performance indicators”.
