Accreditation and patient safety
When you are considering cosmetic surgery, it’s important for you to know if the operating suite is an accredited quality organisation that uses the skills of a fully qualified anaesthetist.
Why is accreditation important?
By choosing a surgeon who operates from an accredited surgical facility, you can be assured of:
- qualified, trained and experienced support staff
- a fully-qualified anaesthetist
- clean and fully-equipped operating room
- adequate personnel and equipment to respond to emergency situations.
Medical Cosmetic Centre’s accreditation
Melbourne Street Day Surgery is Medical Cosmetic Centre’s on-site operating suite. The suite has been accredited for 18 years with the Australian Council on Health Care Standards and is currently accredited with Global Mark Pty Ltd since April 2017. Global–Mark is one of the leading conformity assessment bodies (CABs) in Australia.
For a facility to receive accreditation, it must adhere to strict standards for staff, sanitation, equipment, and patient care which are set out in the 10 National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards.
As part of accreditation, there is regular monitoring of infection rates. Melbourne Street Day Surgery has had no infections for the past eight years.
Dr Kerry and his staff must allow regular inspections and provide thorough records of policies, procedures and audits to retain accreditation.
Medical Cosmetic Centre’s anaesthetic services
Using a fully-qualified anaesthetist to provide intravenous twilight sedation is part of Medical Cosmetic Centre’s accreditation requirements.
The specialist anaesthetists from Wakefield Anaesthetic Group will provide intravenous sedation if it is needed for your procedure. These anaesthetists have been working with Dr Kerry for over 20 years and fully understand the requirements of your procedure.
We will be happy to answer any questions about our accreditation or your anaesthetic. Please feel free to contact us or to chat to Dr Kerry at your next appointment.
