RESPOND TO BELOW POST
Ambulatory Surgery Centers are facilities in which certain surgeries can be performed and hospital admission is not required. Procedures in an ASC tend to be more cost-effective and convenient than in a hospital. The policies and procedures that would be relevant in an ASC include: patient consent and preoperative assessment guidelines, sedation, emergency/crash cart, sterilization, hand hygiene, fall prevention, medication management and discharge post-procedure.
Behavioral Health/Addiction Treatment Centers are facilities providing services that include assessment and referral, medically supervised withdrawal management, inpatient-to-outpatient treatment, counseling and aftercare. Specific policies and procedures will include staff training for de-escalation tactics, medication administration, and HIPAA policies for release of sensitive PHI. Policies regarding patient restraints and admission/discharge/re-admission and procedures for patient observation and urine drug testing are also likely.
