“STAFF QUALITY TRAININGS AT PUH”
1. Biomedical waste trainings (BMW )- Done twice every week
The goal of PUH is to lower potential health hazards and health issues. Activities carried out to accomplish this goal produce biological waste, which is unhealthy and has the potential to injure people and spread illnesses. Safe handling, disposal, and treatment procedures must be implemented in order to mitigate threats to human and environmental health and thus, Quality department at PUH conducts trainings in order to follow infection control practices by providing weekly training sessions to the staff of PUH.
2. Needle stick injury trainings (NSI) – Done twice every week
Needle stick injuries are a common occurrence in the healthcare sector. In order to decrease the frequency of needle sticks and, consequently, the number of transmissions of blood-borne viruses in response to the exposure risk, PUH has prioritized primary prevention. But needle stick injuries can occur, so it's important that employees working in the healthcare sector are knowledgeable of the dangers of exposure and trained in the appropriate response and so, Quality department at PUH organizes weekly training sessions to prevent needle stick injuries during procedures.
3. Hand hygiene training- Done twice every week
By maintaining great hand hygiene, which includes thoroughly washing hands at the appropriate times, the majority of diseases associated with healthcare can be prevented. If HCWs don't properly and timely wash their hands, they face the danger of spreading infection-causing microorganisms from one patient to another. Using hand hygiene at crucial moments is an important health care strategy which we, at PUH follow thoroughly & provide training to staff on regular basis.
4. Spill management- Done once a month
Hundreds of people come into touch with potentially harmful substances like body fluids, medications, cleaning fluids, and other chemicals on daily basis in a hospital. As a result, incidents involving spills of chemicals, bodily fluids, or blood are always possible in hospitals due to broken or malfunctioning machinery as well as human error. Any such spill endangers the wellbeing of the staff, visitors, and patients because they are all particularly prone to infection. Therefore, Quality department at PUH conducted proper training to the GDA, nursing & other staff monthly and monitoring & inspection of any such activities is done on regular basis.
5. Code red/ fire mock drill & training- 05-09-2022 & 08-09-22
The primary objective of the Fire Response Plan – ‘Code Red’ is to provide instructions for hospital staff to adhere to during a Code Red.
In fire safety training sessions, PUH staff learn about the resources that assist to prevent fires, the numerous steps involved in resolving such fire disaster situations, and how to safely leave a building during a fire. With the assistance of this fire safety instruction given by Quality department, the possibilities of occurrence of hazards are reduced and staffs are trained by mock drills.
