“With this full accreditation, we’re going to upgrade UNAIR Hospital status from Type C to Type B. And then upgrade it again to be education hospital,” said Prof. Nasron.
There are four levels of KARS accreditations based on 2012 accreditation system version, basic, medium, major and full accreditation. To achieve full accreditation, a hospital has to pass 15 working units assessment, such as service access and continuity, drugs management, patients and their families’ education, and patients’ safety.

All commands from the leadership were continued to the subordinates and ideas or inputs from the bottom were given to the high officials. This flow has made the achievement possible. Cooperation of 500 personnel became a great strength so the short preparation made was a success.
“The accreditation was expected not as merely visitation and stopped. But there’s continuity in the implementation so the healthcare service given to the people will be better and improved as it was the real objective of accreditation,” said Purwaningsih. (*)
