Infection Control at La Peer Surgery Center

The professionals at La Peer Health Systems understand the importance of infection control and maintaining a sterile environment. La Peer Surgery Center is a double certified surgical center. What this means is that the center was awarded superior ratings from both the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) and the Institute for Medical Quality (IMQ). These agencies are responsible for overseeing quality control practices in the health care field and are two of the most respected organizations in the industry.

Secondary infections, like staph (staphylococcus) and the MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) virus are very common in traditional hospital settings and can lead to serious problems – and even death in surgery patients. Hospital staff can transfer these infections from one patient to another if certain sterilization practices are not followed. Our center maintains an infection rate of less than 1% in all the procedures we perform on a daily basis at our facility. We accomplish this by maintaining a strict adherence to the guidelines set forth by AAAHC and IMQ. For this reason, La Peer Surgery Center is known as a leader in safe medical care.

We want out patients to feel safe and secure in our facility. We implement not only the standard infection control procedures set forth by the governing agencies, but La Peer Surgery Center goes above and beyond compliance with national standards of patient care to ensure that our patients are treated in the most sterile environment possible. We hope that our double accreditation and almost non-existent infection rate will lend credence to that statement.
