SOBRINHO, Fernanda Martins et al. Performance in the process of accreditation of public hospitals in Minas Gerais/ Brazil: influences on the quality of care. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.37, pp.286-297. ISSN 1695-6141.

The objective is to analyze the non-conformities related to the direction of accreditation of public hospitals in Minas Gerais and its influences on quality of care process. Descriptive, quantitative and desk research conducted in eight public hospitals participating in the Program for Strengthening and Improving the Quality of Hospitals of the Unified Health MG (ProHosp). Data were collected from reports of Organizational Diagnosis of the National Organization for Accreditation of hospitals who authorized the study and categorized into Structure, Process and Outcome. The most frequent NC structure was related to "define and implement institutional policy for managing clinical and non-clinical risks, contemplating preventive and corrective actions". NC The most frequent case was "strengthening institutional communication methodology contemplating capillarization of the information needed to guarantee the quality and safety of care". The NC found the results were not quantitatively representative. We conclude that the NC are mainly related to the structure and processes, because hospitals in this study are at an early stage of the process of continuous improvement. So, the development of action plans to mitigate these NC is required.
