As the number of patients with COVID-19 begins to level off, many states have eased restrictions for resuming elective surgeries. While the expectation of a COVID-FREE environment anywhere is likely not possible, a more realistic and achievable goal is to be COVID-SAFE.
SAMBA has compiled and is offering this COVID-SAFE Checklist to help ambulatory anesthesiologists create COVID-SAFE environments, helping to reassure the public and patients that you are committed to appropriate measures designed to protect their safety as they receive anesthesia care for their procedures and surgeries.
As your facility complies with all of the checklist items on an ongoing basis, it may display a certificate at the end of the Checklist document indicating it follows the Society for Ambulatory Anesthesia (SAMBA) COVID-SAFE Checklist measures.
SAMBA’s ASC Membership is designed to provide surgical centers a cost-effective way to keep all medical staff and allied health providers that work in an ASC, Endoscopy Center or office-based setting up-to-date on the latest industry knowledge.
SAMBA offers ASC Memberships to encourage Medical Directors, and staff physicians to participate not only in educational activities related to Ambulatory Surgery, but also provides a platform for sharing information and educational tools among the industry’s most talented practitioners.
