International Nurses Day
Compliant is delighted to be supporting International Nurses Day this May and this year it is even more important to celebrate our nurses as we thank them for their dedication throughout the pandemic.
The International Council of Nurses (ICN) has celebrated this day since 1965, with May 12th being chosen to celebrate the day as it is the anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale.
This year’s theme follows on from previous years, the overarching theme for IND is Nurses: A Voice to Lead. The sub-theme for 2021 is ‘A Vision for Future Healthcare’.
‘A Vision for Future Healthcare’ is extremely fitting as we all turn our minds to what the future of healthcare will look like.
Here at Compliant we are considering how we can come together to keep the healthcare sector Compliant.
With an increased focus on regulations, quality of patient care tends to suffer. That is where we come in. Compliant takes the headache out of looking after management systems and works directly with health care providers to ensure compliance.
We look at some of the top regulatory challenges in the healthcare environment today:
1. Data Breaches
Electronic data breaches have become a significant problem in all industries, but can prove to be particularly devastating to the healthcare industry. Despite GDPR, providers are still struggling to manage data as securely as they need to be. Implementing ISO 27001:Information Security demonstrates that you have systems in place to protect patient information and data, whether this is online or offline.
2. Management Arrangements
Ensuring that healthcare staff fulfill certain duties whilst meeting performance objectives can be challenging. Implementing a quality management system such as ISO 9001: Quality can address some of the arising challenges. Organisations that hold an ISO 9001 certificate are recognised in the UK and internationally for high quality in the way that their business is managed.
Like any corporate business, healthcare providers and hospitals have a duty of responsibility to their employees. The top management must take overall responsibility and accountability for the prevention of work-related injury and ill-health as well as the provision of safe and healthy workplaces and activities. Implementing ISO 45001:Health&Safety enables providers to manage and respond to regulatory compliance issues more effectively.
