18 Jul, 2019


One of the tools of Lean management in Hospitals and Healthcare Industry is the 5S Methodology, the Japanese workplace organization approach for Visual management of spaces. To successfully implement this powerful tool in the target hospital it is essential to inform the stakeholders of the workplace about the principles of the methodology and its benefits. Hence, a 5S training session for the Nursing staff of GNRC Hospital Dispur was conducted by Ms Prity Borgohain, a student of Kaziranga University MBA (Hospital Administration) semester III , headed by Mr Abhinav Borthakur, Head of Fire and Safety department GNRC, who is also in-charge of implementing 5S in the Hospital as well as assisted by Ms Judith (Nursing In-charge) on 15th July 2019. A total of about 40 nursing students, staff, and in-charges were present in the session.  The basics of 5S and its different steps and processes were talked about in relation with its usage in various areas of the hospital, more specifically its implementation in the nursing stations of GNRC Hospital. This session is also a part of the student’s Summer Internship Project.
