Hospitals: Rep Make Case For Review Of Structure Of Boards

A member of the House of Representatives, Bamidele Salam, has stressed the need for the review of the structure of the governing board of Teaching Hospitals in the country.
Salam, who is the sponsor of a bill for the Amendment of the University Teaching Hospitals ( Reconstitution of Boards) Act,  said this would help to entrench professionalism in the management of tertiary health Institutions in the country.
The lawmaker explained that the bill which is currently at the committee stage, is in tandem with global best practices. He noted that hospital administration is a speciality within healthcare administration, especially as it focuses on the overall operation of hospitals and other significant health facilities and requires both healthcare experience and administrative/management acumen.
According to him, the proposed legislation is intended to  strengthen the administration mechanism of University Teaching Hospitals, through the broadening of its administrative heads and entrench greater professionalism in their management.
Bamidele expressed optimism that the bill if eventually passed into law will reduce inter-disciplinary rivalry within the teaching hospitals, as it will ensure  that all critical stakeholders are involved in the composition of the Boards of the teaching hospitals.
