In the panel, the different between accreditation and standard was discussed. According to patients’ point of view, doctors should give preference to standard rather than accreditation. Because standard is more important than the accreditation. According to Dr. Wasim, standards should be reviewed primarily from a regulator’s view, then secondarily from manufacturers’ move; further then it should be checked that if the standard are balanced if they are not then they should be done. In current days the focus has been shifted to accreditation. Now – a – days if a hospital has a good accreditation then it provides good services. It is not the same; if hospital has good accreditation then it might not have good quality.
