Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) November 18, 2007
In late October, an investigator with the Florida Department of Health ranked the office surgery facility at the South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery (SFCCS) as an "overall excellent facility." The cosmetic surgeons at SFCCS perform cosmetic surgery in this Fort Lauderdale outpatient surgery center.
The Florida Department of Health sets standards for office-based surgery within the state and the Board of Medicine is responsible for monitoring the safety of licensed clinics. South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery offers office-based cosmetic surgery in Fort Lauderdale so that its clients can enjoy a more convenient and comfortable medical environment compared to a hospital setting.
"We appreciate that the Board of Medicine has recognized the level of care we place in operating an outstanding facility to serve our Fort Lauderdale and Miami plastic surgery clients," said Tess M. Jahnke, President of SFCCS. "We work hard to ensure our surgery center remains a top-level facility, and take pride in being called an 'excellent, well organized facility' during our latest inspection."
Inspections are performed by state investigators who are often licensed healthcare risk managers or MDs registered in the state. At the inspection, a clinic is evaluated on a variety of factors, including staff credentials, facility and equipment, compliance with state regulations, risk-management practices, success in meeting training requirements, and compliance with all anesthesia guidelines. South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery's cosmetic surgery clinic in Fort Lauderdale received the highest possible rankings on these factors and all the others evaluated during inspections.
"From documentation to follow-up care to clinical staff qualifications, our facility received top reviews," continued Ms. Jahnke. "Our outpatient surgery facility has met or exceeded the state's stringent office-based surgery regulations, including those for general anesthesia."
Unlike SFCCS, many clinics that perform cosmetic surgery procedures avoid the rigorous demands of state licensure by performing procedures only under local anesthesia. By offering only local anesthesia, these clinics expose their patients to increased risk, requiring them to take unnecessary drugs in some cases and lacking the resources to monitor patients during the procedure. SFCCS is committed to patient satisfaction and safety, with staff including cosmetic surgeons and MD anesthesiologists credentialed by the state.
"Our staff is proud to provide outpatient surgery services in our recently inspected facility," added Ms. Jahnke. "Our clients have yet another reason to trust that they will receive outstanding care when they choose South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery."
