In safe hands
As Australia’s largest private ophthalmology provider, our aim is to deliver world-class eye care to patients by focusing on the quality and safety of our services. We promise to provide a safe and comfortable environment for your medical care by focusing on three key areas: infection control, emotional safety and wellbeing and a commitment to quality – you can download our ‘In safe hands’ program outline here.
As a registered healthcare service, antimicrobial control is a critical part of our successful operation. Antimicrobial stewardship, together with infection prevention/control and hand hygiene, is a key strategy at Panch Day Surgery Centre to encourage safe and appropriate use of antimicrobials, reduce patient harm and decrease the incidence of resistance.
The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care has identified improved healthcare worker hand hygiene as the highest priority area to reduce the risk of healthcare-associated infections. Panch Day Surgery Centre staff adhere to a rigorous, facility-wide hand hygiene program that is compliant with Hand Hygiene Australia. We also exceed the national average as given by the National Hand Hygiene Initiative.
