I was a part of the disaster management and safety training for healthcare providers and organizers with Blue Ocean Consultants at Panchkula, Haryana. The training was excellent and was liked by the trainees. Important issues related to safety and disaster mitigation were discussed and hands on training was provided to all. Participants were enthusiastic.
The way BOC provided the training was quite different than what is traditionally done. The whole emphasis was on letting the trainees shed their inhibition of using the safety devices and become comfortable while using them.
Some even said, "Though we have always seen the fire extinguishers hanging in the facility for decades, but we never, before this date ever handled them or read what is written on them".
Dr. Ashish K. Gupta, has extensively and actively worked in the State of Gujarat in the period between 2008 to 2012 for providing consultancy and guidance for quality up -gradation of public sector healthcare services. He is still involved as a very important resource person for this activity in the State of Gujarat.
He has been a key guide and trainer for healthcare personnel both at the directorate of Health and Family Welfare as well as at the level of healthcare providers at hospital level ranging from tertiary care hospitals attached to the medical colleges to secondary care hospitals at district & sub -district levels, community health centres and primary health centres.
He has been a mentor and a teacher to those who have been instrumental in bringing this change for betterment in the healthcare delivery that it is now acknowledged to be the best in India. I acknowledge his efforts and appreciate Dr. Ashish K. Gupta for being a big force behind the improvements in the healthcare sector in the State of Gujarat.
“Blue Ocean Consultants provided critical technical expertise that is assisted us in avoiding omissions that would have been extraordinarily expensive to deal with during implementation of NABH in our organization.
Their experience in quality & training is invaluable. Fully understanding of the NABH Criteria is a unique challenge in itself. The committed service we received from The Blue Ocean Consultants allowed us to be sure that we thoroughly investigated and obtained a valid interpretation of the criteria before applying for certification. They were particularly helpful in the area of QA, which gave us full confidence once we started the certification process. This experience enhanced our ability to incorporate the specified criteria and standards, which added a beneficial element to Ahooja Eye & Dental Institute”.
A thirst to improve quality & manage hospitals made us, hire consultants to do the needful four years back. Dr. Ashish Gupta was deputed to oversee this project. It is a matter of pride & satisfaction that Dr. Ashish K. Gupta has executed the project with completeness & satisfaction.
