For immediate release: July 3, 2017 Contact: Marketing Director, Lisa Stichert Phone: 847-775-7915 Email: lstichert@aaaasf.org CHICAGO, IL — New York Oral & Facial Surgery, L.L.C., in New York, NY has demonstrated its commitment to patient safety by gaining accreditation from the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) for the second time in a row. AAAASF is celebrating its 37th year of promoting the highest quality patient safety in the ambulatory surgery setting (office-based or outpatient), as well as rehabilitation and outpatient therapy agencies and rural health clinics. AAAASF requires 100 percent compliance with all accreditation standards and does not offer partial accreditation. If a facility fails to meet any standard, it must correct the deficiency or risk denial or loss of accreditation. To earn its accreditation, New York Oral & Facial Surgery, L.L. C. passed inspection on hundreds of important criteria concerning patient safety. AAAASF facility surveyors are board certified medical specialists trained to perform a thorough and complete facility inspection. AAAASF facility surveyors follow a regimented procedure to survey an outpatient surgery facility in the following categories:

  • General Environment
  • Operating Room Environment, Policy and Procedures
  • Recovery Room Environment, Policy and Procedures
  • General Safety in the Facility
  • Blood and Medications
  • Medical Records
  • Quality Assessment and Quality Improvement
  • Personnel
  • Anesthesia
