Share Article

Completed thorough review process

Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of New York, founded by Dr. Majid Jamali in New York, NY, has demonstrated its commitment to patient safety by gaining accreditation from the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). AAAASF just celebrated its 35th year of promoting the highest quality patient safety in the ambulatory surgery setting (office-based or outpatient), as well as rehabilitation and outpatient therapy agencies and rural health clinics.

AAAASF requires 100 percent compliance with all accreditation standards and does not offer partial accreditation. If a facility fails to meet any standard, it must correct the deficiency or risk denial or loss of accreditation.

To earn its accreditation, OMSofNY passed inspection on hundreds of important criteria concerning patient safety. AAAASF facility inspectors are board certified medical specialists trained to perform a thorough and complete facility inspection. AAAASF facility inspectors follow a regimented procedure to inspect an outpatient surgery facility in the following categories:

  •     General Environment
  •     Operating Room Environment, Policy and Procedures
  •     Recovery Room Environment, Policy and Procedures
  •     General Safety in the Facility
  •     Blood and Medications
  •     Medical Records
  •     Quality Assessment and Quality Improvement
  •     Personnel
  •     Anesthesia
