standards for staffing (quantity).
My response is mentioned below with a copy of the email.
I hope the same would help any concerned on the said aspect of HR
Dr Akash S Rajpal.
Kindly refer to the below mentioned NABH standard.
NABH does not lay down staffing quantity specifications and it is upto
the organisation to decide what is suitable.
What NABH would look at would be the efficacy of operations and human
resource planning. If you are able to comply to various standards
related to patient records effectively even with one staff they would
appreciate it, and if you cant even with 10 staff then a non compliance
would be made depending on the severity of the problem. Therefore it is
important to assess how much staff is required to carry out the assigned
tasks in specified shifts by way of HR planning followed by continuous
monitoring for efficiency of staffing & errors for improvement &
HRM.1: The organization has a documented system of human resource
A.The organization maintains an adequate number and mix of staff to meet
the care, treatment and service needs of the patient
