1. How do I know which is the right hospital for me? How do I review/assess a hospital?
Following factors can help patients in finding the best knee replacement hospital in India:
Does the hospital have an government certification to provide medical facilities in India (NABH or JCI)? JCI (Joint Commission International): an international healthcare organization which provides quality certificate to hospitals who deliver standard services to the patients. NABH (National Accreditation Board for Hospitals & Healthcare) is a similar certification board that analyses the quality of treatment delivered at Indian hospitals.
Does the hospital have an advanced infrastructural design and is equipped with the technology required for performing knee replacement surgery? Patients should ensure that the hospital has an orthopedic center, before selecting their hospital. Most patients require movement therapies after the surgery, which require the use of advanced machines.
What are the old patients reviews of the hospital? Patients can refer to the reviews of former patients for analyzing the quality of treatment which they are going to receive at the hospital.
