Choosing a hospital may seem a trying task. In most instances, people tend to rely on their doctors to decide on a hospital before a planned surgery. Not to mention, in an emergency one doesn’t have a choice but to rush to the nearest medical facility. But, it is absolutely advisable to interrogate about the hospital before planning a surgery.
A majority of surgeons in India conduct surgeries in a number of hospitals in their city. Often, they provide patients with all options during a consultation. Moreover, various factors influence such decisions, such as proximity or accessibility, expenditure, facilities in terms of medical safety, and coverage by healthcare insurance plan with respect to the hospital concerned.
However, sometimes we tend to overlook certain important aspects which should be essentially considered before choosing a hospital, which are:
- Whether the hospital provides multispecialty care.
- It’s standards with regard to hygiene/Infection control.
- Provision of post-surgical rehabilitation facilities.
- Patient reviews, on specific surgical procedure in question.
- Whether the hospital is abreast of newer technologies and quality of care.
- Doctors’ opinion regarding the hospital.
- Patients’ reviews with respect to hospital staff courtesy.
