With the aim to create a robust and vibrant eco-system for quality vocational education and skill development in Healthcare, 3M India Limited and HSSC (Healthcare Sector Skill Council) signed a Memorandum of Understanding recently in Delhi.
Debarati Sen, Managing Director, 3M India Region and Ashish Jain, Chief Executive Officer, HSSC, signed the Memorandum of Understanding. The Healthcare Sector Skill Council (HSSC) is under the ambit of Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship working toward ‘Skill India’ mission.
Multiple studies have documented the high incidence of infection amongst patients from the use of improperly ‘processed’ surgical instruments. This makes it imperative for hospitals to have a trained work force in sterilization function thereby ensuring reduction in post-operative infections and subsequent complications. To address this need, 3M Health Care, a global leader for quality monitoring in the device reprocessing space, will be partnering with HSSC to train the CSSD (Central Sterile Services Department) personnel across India.
Speaking at the event, Jain said; “HSSC aims to facilitate skill development in Healthcare benchmarked to global standards ensuring quality and standardization. It is our endeavor to train and skill Indian youth making them employable not only for India but for the world. This partnership between 3M and HSSC is a step in this direction.”
Talking about the partnership, L.C Das, Executive Director, Healthcare Business Group, said, “3M in India has been present in the healthcare industry for nearly 3 decades and we recognize the need to create standardization which can change the existing practices around hygiene in hospitals. As knowledge partners to HSSC, 3M India with its global expertise endeavor to provide tools and best practices that help individuals, healthcare organizations and trainers to improve performance, productivity and efficiency. We are confident that this synergistic collaboration between HSSC & 3M will deliver impactful results in reducing post-operative infection.”
