ASC Policy Manual

Ambulatory Surgery Center policies and procedures support the surgery center in achieving the standard of care recognized by the accreditation program, state licensure and CMS. The surgery center must adopt written policies and procedures that describe the processes and requirements to meet the conditions for coverage. The Ambulatory Surgery Center must evidence a series of daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual logs. To meet conditions for coverage, the Accredia shop manuals and log forms focus on specific significant chapters that validate the documentation that depict the surgery center setting.
