The WASCA conference presentation was one that Derry, Nolan & Associates has been looking forward to for some time. We knew the material needed to be highly relevant to current compliance issues facing Washington State ASCs. Cathy Strauss, our ASC Specialist (and presenter!), has implemented ASC Infection Control Programs and felt strongly that the topic would be near and dear to many WASCA Conference participants.
As you continue to move forward to align your ASC with the 2009 updated CMS Guidelines, consider the experience and resources needed to properly implement the various ASC programs. Compliance makes everyone's life easier - and it certainly helps create a healthy, supportive ASC environment for patients, staff and physicians.
We hope those of you who missed the WASCA Conference, as well as those who attended, will download Cathy's WASCA presentation from our Media page. There are also helpful ASC handouts included on the page that may be useful as you begin to revamp your ASC's Infection Prevention and Control program.
Contact Derry, Nolan & Associates for assistance developing and implementing any of your ASC’s programs.
