What AAAASF Accreditation Means to You
For a facility to receive accreditation by The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (AAASF), it must meet the same rigorous standards for cleanliness, equipment maintenance, staff qualification, and ethical practice that you would receive if you were having your surgery performed in the hospital. The facility and its staff must also demonstrate the ability to respond fully and swiftly to any emergencies that may arise. By meeting these standards, you can feel confident that your surgeon and OR staff are taking every necessary precaution to minimize your risk of infection, anesthesia side effects, and other preventable complications.
Additionally, AAAASF accreditation requires that the physician performing your surgery have privileges to perform the same procedure in the hospital, where he or she is subject to peer evaluation. This provides an additional layer of assurance that your surgeon is skilled and experienced in the specific procedure you are undergoing.
Finally, the AAAASF performs regular audits of all of its certified facilities to ensure the safest standards and practices are in place. Highly respected for its strict requirements and thorough facility evaluation process, AAAASF accreditation is considered the “Gold Standard” for ensuring patient safety in outpatient surgery.
