Moorfields Eye Hospital Dubai has earned Joint Commission International’s Gold Seal of Approval for Ambulatory Care Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its internationally recognised standards.

Moorfields Eye Hospital Dubai underwent a rigorous on-site survey last month. During the survey, a Joint Commission International expert surveyor evaluated compliance with ambulatory care standards related to a variety of areas, including the International Patient Safety Goals, patient assessment and care, anaesthesia and surgical care, medication management, patient and family education, quality improvement, infection prevention and control, governance and leadership, facility management, staff qualifications and education, and information management.
