"Even so, what we got at this time (RSAU Salamun) prepared a second accreditation. And the burden is on the current Karumkit (Head of Hospital). And he (Karumkit) has just taken office, how extraordinary the efforts of the newly-held Karumkit and friends (RSAU Salamun), "he added.
In addition, Djoti also revealed that the accreditation of the third hospital will be carried out by Redosko. Where at the time of visitation, the patient will confirm the service performed by the doctor.
"And later in the third accreditation, you will use the method we call Redosko. That everyone should be able to do an interview. The doctor will conduct an examination. What is the patient rights that you must understand and I will confirm. Redosko, "ko" is confirmation. "It is true that all patients after being served get an explanation," said Djoti.
"That is our current shortage that doctors are very stingy to educate patients and their families. And Alhamdulillah, this step has been passed well by the Salamun Hospital," he said.
