The Rivers State University Teaching Hospital (RSUTH) recently underwent a crucial international accreditation process for its Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) laboratory. The South African National Accreditation System (SANAS) team, led by Madam Tati Khubheka, conducted a two-day visit on May 6th and 7th, 2024.

The accreditation visit aimed to evaluate the PCR laboratory’s adherence to international standards set by SANAS. The PCR lab plays a crucial role in diagnosing various infectious diseases by detecting the presence of genetic material in patient samples.

During the two-day visit, the SANAS team thoroughly assessed the laboratory’s infrastructure, equipment, processes, and quality management system. They also reviewed the qualifications and competencies of the laboratory staff, ensuring that they possess the necessary skills and knowledge to perform accurate and reliable PCR testing.

The RSUTH management team actively participated in the accreditation process, providing the assessors with all the required documentation and information. They also facilitated the assessors’ access to the laboratory facilities and answered any questions or clarifications they had.

The Chief Medical Director, Prof. Chizindu A. Alikor, expressed his gratitude to the Governor of Rivers State, His Excellency Sir Siminalayi Fubara GSSRS, for his continuous support and commitment to improving healthcare services in the state. The Governor’s efforts in resource allocation and fulfilling promises to healthcare workers have greatly contributed to the positive transformation of RSUTH.

Prof. Alikor also thanked the leadership of the Institute of Human Virology Nigeria (IHVN) for their partnership and collaboration in this achievement.

Achieving international accreditation for the PCR laboratory is a significant milestone for RSUTH. It demonstrates the hospital’s commitment to maintaining high-quality standards in diagnostic testing and ensuring accurate and reliable results for patients. The accreditation will also enhance the hospital’s reputation and position it as a leading healthcare institution in the region.

The successful accreditation visit by SANAS is a testament to the dedication and hard work of the RSUTH staff in upholding international quality standards. It reflects their commitment to providing excellent healthcare services to the people of Rivers State and beyond.

Moving forward, RSUTH will continue to prioritize quality improvement and adherence to international standards in all aspects of its operations. This accomplishment will further motivate the hospital staff to strive for excellence and continually enhance the healthcare services they provide.
