Safety First: How Queens Surgical Center Maintains a High Standard of Infection Prevention and Control

At Queens Surgical Center, our primary objective is to ensure the safety and well-being of our patients, staff and surgical partners. A crucial aspect of this is implementing rigorous infection prevention and control measures within our ambulatory surgery center (ASC).

A Comprehensive Approach to Infection Prevention

Infection control is paramount at Queens Surgical Center. To keep our standards high, we take a comprehensive approach, which involves:

Rigorous Cleaning and Sterilization Procedures

Our facility prides itself on maintaining an exceptionally clean environment. With regular disinfection of high-touch surfaces using EPA-registered disinfectants, we ensure the elimination of potential pathogens. Notably, our sterilization procedures for all surgical instruments are stringent, minimizing any risk of cross-contamination.

Further, our operating rooms undergo deep cleaning on a regular schedule, providing a sterile environment for every surgery, regardless of the time of day.

Strict Adherence to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Guidelines

Understanding the critical role of PPE in infection control, all our staff adhere to the mandatory use of PPE. However, the use of PPE goes beyond just wearing it. We invest time and resources in regular training sessions, ensuring correct usage and disposal to minimize risk. 

Staff Training and Education: Our Stronghold Against Infection

Education forms the bedrock of our infection control protocol. An informed team is our greatest asset in maintaining stringent infection prevention and control measures.

Hygiene Best Practices

Regular workshops are conducted to keep our team updated on hygiene best practices. From proper hand hygiene to the correct use of gloves, our staff is trained to maintain optimal hygiene levels at all times.

Infection Control Guidelines

As part of our commitment to maintaining a safe environment, we ensure that all staff are conversant with the latest infection control guidelines as stipulated by the CDC and WHO. Emphasis is also placed on the proper handling and disposal of biomedical waste, a key aspect of infection control.

Regular Monitoring and Auditing

Beyond training and procedures, we employ robust monitoring and auditing mechanisms, including regular audits and risk management strategies. By identifying potential infection risks and addressing them proactively, we ensure a safe environment for our patients.

We also encourage feedback from our team and use this valuable insight to continuously improve our practices. The goal is to ensure safety and prevention remain at the forefront of everything we do.

State-of-the-Art Equipment and Technology: The Future of Infection Control

Our investment in advanced equipment and technology plays a significant role in our infection control measures. By using state-of-the-art sterilization equipment and cutting-edge air filtration systems, we ensure that our environment is as clean and sterile as possible, reducing the risk of infections significantly.
