Quality / Standards

Standards of care provide the framework for professional health care workers to practice clinically and administratively, and to provide safe and consistent care to the patient.

Stony Brook University Medical Center's fully accredited* Ambulatory Surgery Center provides efficient, high quality surgical services in a professional, friendly environment, and we are a multispecialty Ambulatory Surgery Center developed under the strict guidelines required for Medicare certification and with an ongoing Quality Assurance Program. Standards of Care and Practice from several professional organizations (Association of Operating Room Nurses, American Society of Anesthesiology and the Association of Perioperative Nurses) have been used to assist us in the creation of a process to separate the surgical inpatient from the outpatient.
