Patient Safety Recommendations

Patient Safety


Patient Safety at the Hospital International de Colombia - HIC is fundamental. These are the recommendations that patients, family members, caregivers and collaborators should keep in mind to ensure adequate care and well-being. 

Ensure correct identification

Our HIC patients must have an identification handle, where full names and their identification number are recorded. If for any reason this is lost or damaged, you must request its replacement immediately. Also, you should make sure that the staff constantly checks the identification.

Do not accept medication, transfers or procedures without someone verifying the information on the handle.
