Quality and safety
Our primary objective is to support patients with chronic kidney disease in improving and maintaining their quality of life. We offer first class care that meets European quality standards. The B. Braun Avitum renal care centers are certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001 and IEC/TR 62653 "Good Dialysis Practice". Furthermore, HQ Melsungen, Germany, HQ CZ/SK and HQ Hungary are newly certified
according to DIN EN ISO 14001.
The international standard DIN EN ISO 9001 defines the minimum requirements for a quality management system. This is an established standard used in numerous industrial and service sectors around the world. It serves as the basis for providing services and products capable of fulfilling customer expectations and regulatory requirements.
The international standard DIN EN ISO 14001 is the world’s most recognized framework for environmental management systems that helps organizations both to manage better the impact of their activities on the environment and to demonstrate sound environmental management. B. Braun Avitum continually seeks to improve the processes for environmental compatibility, which frequently generate cost savings. The priority areas for improvements were defined as follows: water and electricity consumption per dialysis treatment, waste management, patient and product transport as well as hygiene policy.
The renal care-specific standard IEC/TR 62653 "Good Dialysis Practice" additionally establishes application rules for chronic extracorporeal renal replacement therapy - the quality management system for dialysis facilities. The corresponding certification is awarded on completion of a successful audit. In this context, accepted standards of medical and nursing care are defined as core processes to ensure that treatment is offered every day with the usual consistently high quality.
The certification authority TÜV SÜD has been awarding the "Good Dialysis Practice" certificate for eleven years to various service providers in the field of dialysis. The B. Braun Avitum renal care centers in ten different countries have been certified since 2006.
The B. Braun Group's many years of experience in developing and manufacturing dialysis products enables us to offer both products for extracorporeal blood treatment and dialysis therapy from a single source. We guarantee that our customers always receive first-class dialysis treatment in line with accepted medical standards for renal replacement therapy.
