Acreditação hospitlar: uma abordagem teórica
Canizares, Aline Aparecida
This paper discusses Hospital Accreditation through a theoretical approach, whose development was based on the content of Manual de Acreditação Hospitalar Brasileiro 3ª edição (Brazilian Hospital Accreditation Manual 3rd edition) and on a selection of articles about this subject. It also aims to present the Hospital Accreditation method to be appreciated, demonstrating its techniques, advantages and difficulties. According to Brazilian Ordinance 1970/2001, Hospital Accreditation represents "consensus, rationalization and ordering for hospitals and especially for permanent education of health workers and it is expressed by evaluating institutional, voluntary, periodic and reserved resources, which tends to ensure quality for care procedures through previously established standards". This is a theoretical reflection regardless the research method. Hospital Accreditation is still considered little explored in literature. However, greater interest of scholars in this area may represent a breakthrough in researches development and may accelerate the process of its consolidation in Brazil.
