Lanka Hospitals sets international standards in SL

Lanka Hospitals has become the first hospital in Sri Lanka whose laboratory is certified with the ISO: 15189 standard, an internationally renowned set of quality standards, specifically designed to facilitate and affirm particular requirements for quality and competence in medical laboratories.

Pushpakumara, Dr. Harsha Goonethilake (Assistant Manager Diagnostics)

A press release stated that Lanka Hospitals works according to this international standard and uses it as the basis for all activities, thereby ensuring patients receive results that are accurate and those which guarantee the highest quality. The ISO standard provides a level of quality that can be measured globally and is maintained by the Sri Lanka Accreditation Board (SLAB) locally.

According to Lanka Hospitals, the ISO :15189 standard differs from other standards by not limiting its judging to just management standards, but by also dealing with the technical aspect - providing advice to those who not only use the laboratory services but also collect samples from patients and interpret the test results.

To meet with SLAB standards and receive the ISO: 15189 accreditation, members of the Lanka Hospitals Laboratory team underwent external workshops and training courses carried out by SLAB on quality management and internal courses to update their knowledge in various fields.
