Quality management standard EN 15224 was developed specifically for the health sector. It is aimed at medical practitioners, hospitals, and any institutions engaged in nursing or other health care. The emphasis of this standard is on hospital process and risk management. Both components are strong indicators of the degree of quality care in your institution.
Basically, the requirements of EN 15224 agree with those of ISO 9001. However, EN 15224 requires more. It defines a total of eleven quality characteristics for health care, and emphasizes that the management of clinical risk is included in all processes for planning, execution, and control.
