(Rutherford, NJ, 11/22/13) – MALO Center for Ambulatory Surgery (MALO ASC) in Rutherford, NJ has demonstrated its commitment to patient safety by gaining accreditation from The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF), recognized nationally as the “Gold Standard” in accreditation.
According to Joseph M. Testani, Chief Administrative Officer, “The benefits of AAASF certification offer MALO both the understanding of quality care in an ambulatory surgery facility as well as the status certification provides. We appreciate the insights we have gained in the process of certification, and take pride in the AAASF designation.”
To earn its accreditation, MALO ASC, just as every AAAASF accredited ambulatory surgery facility, must meet stringent national standards for general environment, general safety, blood and medication, medical records, quality assessment/improvement, personnel, operating room, recovery room, and anesthesia. The end result is that the accredited facility makes a commitment toward maintaining safety and quality in the ambulatory surgery facility. As the leading accrediting organization for ambulatory facilities, AAAASF has developed the systems to effectively monitor and implement the latest advances in outpatient care delivery that directly benefit patients.
MALO ASC has demonstrated that it has met the highest standards in patient care and safety. Meeting the “Gold Standard” requirements elevates the patient safety awareness of every member of the staff and improves the quality of care.
