All of SmileTrain’s treatment partnerships are required to follow SmileTrain’s Quality Improvement Protocol, which lays out the basic elements needed to insure safe surgeries and to provide for the ongoing review and improvement of the quality of care.
Developed by world-renowned members of our Medical Advisory Board, the safety & quality protocol guide sets the minimum standards that are expected from our partners to ensure the safety of our patients and the quality of care they receive.
These guidelines are designed to promote the safety of children undergoing general anesthesia for cleft lip and palate procedures.
This training resource aims to help ensure that patients receiving cleft treatment also have safe and high-quality of care after surgery. The materials cover post-operative nursing care and pediatric basic life support.
At Smile Train, patient safety is the guiding force behind every program and initiative.
Here are some ways that we make safety our top priority.
