Our spoken translators rendered translation services during JCI accreditation

Our spoken translators in Astana successfully rendered quality translation services during JCI accreditation of the National Children’s Rehabilitation Center.

The accreditation took place between 7th and 10th August 2017. During the survey our lovely interpreters Sofiya and Eric accompanied their respective surveyors and helped ensure effective communication between the latter and the Center staff. The purpose of the survey was to determine to which extent the Center is compliant to the Joint Commission International standards – the standards for healthcare organizations across the globe to ensure quality care and patient safety.

Sofiya followed Dr. Nathan from the USA who mainly focused on facility safety standards. On their way around the Center facility Sofiya despite her femininity got easily on the roof of a building to see if the standards are followed there 🙂  Who knew how far this would take Sofiya! But she came prepared 😉

In the meantime, Eric followed Dr. Anna Miranda from Brazil and was mainly involved doing clinical standards.

 

What an amazing week! Not just for the Center staff and surveyors, but also the interpreters.

BTW, the National Children’s Rehabilitation Center passed the accreditation with ease. This was the Center’s second accreditation. The first one was back in 2014. Once again the Center proved to earn the title of the only JCI accredited children’s rehab centers in Central Asia. 

We – the BG team – would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the Center’s team and leadership with another victory. Way to go!
