With the increasing demand for hospitals, the healthcare industry has become one of the prime industries for capital investment in India. In 1980s, there were private clinics, small nursing homes, private hospitals, government hospitals, and public health centers. Recent times have witnessed change in the trends, and many corporate hospitals have emerged with the state-of-the-art medical equipment and multispecialty services to the patients. With the emergence of numerous multispecialty hospitals, the demand for hospital administrators is also equally growing. Hospital administration is a specialized course, which deals with the various aspects of administration of hospitals. Since the hospitals are dealing with human lives, the administrators and other medical, paramedical, and supportive staff require a special talent, training, competency, qualification and experience for running a hospital efficiently and effectively. The present book is a comprehensive and contemporary textbook aimed at imparting practical knowledge to the readers about the functioning of the hospital, sensitive issues in hospitals, duties and responsibility of each and every category of employee in hospitals, patients’ rights and responsibilities, guidelines for accreditation, doctors’ do’s and don’ts, and hospital systems and procedures, which are commonly followed. The author, Dr D Rambabu has condensed his vast administrative experience of running a tertiary care hospital network into this book. While this book has one dedicated chapter on NABH (National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers), some of the difficult subjects such as biomedical engineering, facility management, medical gases, operation theaters, medical records, functioning of various committees and the sensitive issues in day-to-day administration of hospitals, which is a challenging job for administrators have also been extensively covered. This book will be useful for hospital administrators, students, medical professionals, and MBA graduates.
