The AAAASF accreditation is an additional, but important step to ensure patient safety in an ambulatory setting, as convenience should not trump patient safety.
New York, New York (PRWEB) January 12, 2015
Chelsea Fertility of New York City was recently awarded accreditation by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAASF), an organization that develops standards to improve medical care, surgical care, patient safety, and patient outcomes. Since 1980, AAASF has been known as the “Gold Standard” for quality patient care by using standards developed by physicians, for physicians. An accreditation from the AAASF places Chelsea Fertility NYC among the top IVF laboratories in the country, making it one of only 2,000 outpatient facilities with this prestigious designation in the United States.
Chelsea Fertility NYC offers its patients a boutique fertility experience, and a comprehensive fertility treatment program that meets all AAASF safety and physician experience requirements. All tests and procedures are completed in our office using a personalized approach, with no need for patients to travel to another facility as is often the case with other NYC fertility clinics. Our fertility care options include:
- In vitro fertilization (IVF)
- Artificial insemination (IUI)
- Preimplantation genetic testing (PGD and PGS)
- Egg donation
- Gestational surrogacy
- Egg freezing and fertility preservation
- LGBT family building
For over twenty-five years the physicians of Chelsea Fertility NYC have helped build families using state-of-the-art technology in a safe laboratory environment. Only in the past year has a new law taken effect requiring that New York medical facilities be inspected and accredited by independent agencies for outpatient procedures like IVF. The law was “born” out of serious concerns regarding office safety and the experience of those responsible for these onsite procedures. Dr. Paul Gindoff of Chelsea Fertility NYC notes that patient safety is always a top priority at the practice, “The AAAASF accreditation is an additional but essential step to ensure patient safety in an ambulatory setting, as convenience should not trump patient safety. In our boutique facility we have optimized these aspects to render the best patient care and clinical outcomes. Patients that are more confident and relaxed are more successful, especially during fertility treatment where mitigating against stress does have a direct and positive impact.”
All AAASF facilities are regularly inspected and are required to meet 100% of AAASF regulations. This means that physicians who perform office-based surgeries must have hospital privileges, their facilities must be peer reviewed, and all surgical environments and equipment must meet specific quality and safety standards. In addition to meeting the above requirements, Chelsea Fertility of New York City is also proud to have two physicians – Dr. Beth Hartog and Dr. Paul Gindoff – who hold medical faculty positions at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City.
