UNIABUJA hospital domesticates Patients’ Bill of Rights

The University of Abuja Teaching Hospital has officially domesticated the Patients’ Bill of Rights,  with a view to ensuring better clinical satisfaction.

The Chief Medical Director, UATH Prof Bissallah Ekele, who was represented by the Director, Clinical Services UATH, Dr Bob Ukonu, said that the hospital is conscious of its patients’ needs.

Ekele disclosed this at the commissioning of the PBoR in University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada.

He added that staff of the facility do ensure that every patient is treated with utmost care and respect.

He noted that the hospital has domesticated the bill at four points in the hospital to ensure it is fully implemented.

He said, “What a patient means to us as a hospital is so much and we have been making frantic efforts to make sure that they are not only treated here but everything that is needed to make them comfortable in the cause of their treatment is being given to them.

“Today I have looked at the 12 items in the Patients’ Bill of Rights and I can comfortably and confidently tell you that these 12 items have been properly domesticated in our institution, there is no aspect of it that will have not been painstakingly taken care of,” he said.

He further noted that the hospital has been undergoing transformation to ensure better health for the people, adding that it has grown from a 350 to a 550 bedded hospital.

“Today because of the government’s intervention into our facility we are no longer a 350 bedded hospital but 550 bedded hospital and because of that you know that it will not be the same when managing 350 people it means you have more patients to attend to and issues that go with it.

“As an institution in our own wisdom we have also tried to ensure that things are put in place to ensure that these patients will not come in here and go back not only be healthy but at least be satisfied that they were properly and well attended to.”

The Executive Vice Chairman, Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, Babatunde Irukera, lauded the efforts of the management of UATH for ensuring that the PBoR is not only implemented but domesticated in the hospital facility.

The FCCPC boss noted that the domestication of the bill would go a long way to ensure better quality health care delivery in the country.
