Solutions In Sight Laser and Surgery Suite owned and operated by Fisher-Swale-Nicholson Eye Center has achieved a three year accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) for the second time since opening its doors in 2008. Accreditation distinguishes this office-based surgery suite from many other outpatient facilities by providing the highest quality of care to its patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.
Status as an accredited organization means Solutions In Sight Laser and Surgery Suite which provides elective, refractive eye procedures to the public, has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAAHC. It’s important to note, not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation ; not all that undergo the rigorous on-site survey process are granted accreditation.
“Our goal is for patients to receive exceptional care and service and being accredited by AAAHC helps us to achieve this goal,” stated Constance J. Ooten, Assistant Administrator of Fisher-Swale-Nicholson Eye Center. “Putting your facility and procedures under a microscope to achieve the AAAHC stamp of approval can be intimidating and costly, but when the process of accreditation results in offering quality patient care, it’s well worth the effort.” Ambulatory health care organizations seeking accreditation by AAAHC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by AAAHC expert surveyors – physicians, nurses, and administrators who are actively involved in ambulatory health care. The survey is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization improve its care and services. “We are very proud of maintaining our accreditation status and plan to continue to do so in the future,” Ooten said.
