About the International DNV
DNV offers accreditation built on two components:
- A set of hospital standards, National Integrated Accreditation for Health Organizations (NIAHO)
- Additional requirement to achieve ISO 9001 certification, or at least ISO 9001 compliance within the first three years, which focuses on three things:
- Alignment with strategy
- Clear and effective quality management system
- Consistent process execution
This Orientation must take place prior to the individual functioning in his/her role. The Orientation must contain Organization Structure, document control, internal reporting requirements for adverse patient events, patient safety, infection control, among other topics.
In addition, to the above, all contracted staff, vendors and students and volunteers must also be medically cleared before performing in their roles for the Hospital. Clearance includes tuberculosis testing results and, during flu season which is October to March, proof of the flu vaccine. Absent proof of a flu vaccine, individuals will be asked to wear a mask if in the presence of patients. We have a developed a presentation for your review and a test to ascertain your knowledge in the areas noted above. We are requiring that you provide the test, confidentiality statements and Personal Data and Attestation in the form to the Manager of the department you are working, visiting, interning or volunteering in upon arrival to HRH.
