How do your patients rate you?
Hospitals are trusted foundations of optimum health, where people bring new life into the world, undergo life-changing surgery, recover from illness and restore their wellbeing.
Studies* show that patients perceive a hospital’s cleanliness as a marker of its quality, with a perception of an unhygienic environment impacting their feeling of safety while being treated. Imagine viewing your hospital from your patient’s eyes; are the floors clean? Is there mould in tile grout? When they look up from bed, are ceiling corners clear of dust? When patients see something that makes them feel that the environment is not clean, they feel at risk and their satisfaction levels fall.AMC
