Continuous quality improvement describes the overall effort of the hospital organization to achieve the most effective care with the available resources and without compromising quality.
As mandated by Department of Health (DOH) - Administrative Order 2006-0002, the “Establishment of the Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) Program and Committee in DOH Hospitals”, the Department’s CQI was created, spearheaded by Sr. Rowena Rodil, SPC, the Nursing Service Director and Mrs. Josephine Amen, the Quality Assurance Nurse.
Its goal is to ensure that all consumers receive the highest quality and most cost- effective health services available through the development and maintenance of a qualified, diverse, and accessible multidisciplinary network, care and service organizations. One of the committee’s outputs for this year was the presentation of the studies of the different nursing unit conducted last December 9 – 11, 2013. For starters, the presenters really tried their best to which it yields a satisfactory result among our panelists.
