Steps of certification procedures

In February, 2007 the Ministry of Health published the Handbook of Hungarian Health Care Standards in its official journal. The certification requirement based on specific standard means a new alternative for the hospitals and clinics. The institutions may choose system on ISO 9001:2008, or system based on Health Care Standards or they may integrate the two systems.

What does the handbook include?

The structure of the handbook is optimal for both the organisation and the auditors who conduct the assessment, because it

  • defines the standards,
  • specifies the criteria of audit,
  • defines the standards to be documented in the procedure,
  • refers to certain rules. It means the regulation of local practice regarding the laws to be applied by health institutes,
  • defines the areas to be audited,
  • defines the terms and definitions.

The MEES standards consist of six main groups
