From your initial consultation to your final follow-up appointment, you want to know that you are in excellent hands in a place where patient safety is paramount. Plastic surgeries are invasive procedures that must be performed by a skilled, experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon at an accredited surgical facility. Dr. Kevin Bounds is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) and performs procedures at our AAAASF accredited surgical facility in Virginia Beach.
What Does “Accredited” Mean for Surgical Facilities?
In 1980, the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) was founded to improve the standards of outpatient facilities around the world, making health care quality a top priority. This entity is seen as the “Gold Standard in Accreditation” to provide public assurance that all steps are taken to ensure patient safety. Since its inception, the AAAASF has accredited thousands of facilities worldwide, holding outpatient centers to the same standards as hospitals.
Our Plastic Surgery of Virginia Beach surgical facility has met the stringent standards required by the AAAASF, including:
- The surgical facility director meets the strict requirements necessary to run the center safely and effectively.
- The surgical staff has the certifications and credentials necessary to perform or aid in procedures such as board certifications and hospital privileges.
- The center passes a rigorous survey performed by a qualified AAAASF surveyor, ensuring a safe, clean surgical environment and the required staff for procedures, such as anesthesia professionals.
- The facility continues to comply with the AAAASF accreditation standards, which involves an annual self-survey and on-site survey after three years.
Plastic surgeons should only perform procedures at an accredited outpatient facility or in a hospital with operating privileges. When you see the AAAASF accreditation certificate proudly displayed, you can trust that our surgical facility meets 100% of the strict requirements and is devoted to patient safety and satisfaction.
