Infection Rate in Accredited Ambulatory Facilities is Lower than in Hospitals
Date:6/21/2010

in this study is from accredited facilities. Unfortunately, many facilities are neither accredited nor inspected on a regular basis. “We are in agreement that standards should be followed and welcome mandatory accreditation or licensure for all outpatient surgery facilities with regularly scheduled inspections,” Dr. Reed adds.

It is not appropriate to compare the infection rate in outpatient facilities with hospitals as they exist in a totally different and more complex clinical setting. A hospital study conducted by Gaynes, et al.2001, "Surgical Site Infection (SSI) Rates in the United States, 1992 -1998: The National Nosocomial Infections Surveillance System Basic SSI Risk Index "showed an rate of infection 33 times greater than that reported for our accredited ambulatory surgery centers. Patient safety should be the primary consideration.    

“The challenge for instituting and enforcing infection control policies in hospitals is clearly more difficult. Patients, should however, be assured that the infection rate in accredited, ambulatory surgery centers, is very low,” concludes Dr. Reed.
