Ideal Training for Your Surgical Staff and for Increased Surgical Revenues
Do You Employ or Manage Surgical Professionals?
If you are an OR Manager, Director of Surgical Services, or hospital CEO,
you work hard for the continued financial viability of your facility.
Escalating competition between hospitals for surgeons and patients combined
with declining reimbursements is for some hospitals the knockout punch
you don’t recover from. A program which helps reverse that trend
could be very valuable.
Hospitals close every day. Before that they’ve had to endure one
or more painful courses of staff layoffs. It might seem counterintuitive
at first, but the
ACE Surgical Assistant Program could help you utilize the human resources you already have to increase
your surgical revenue.
Why Choose Our Program
By enrolling your Surgical Techs and OR Nurses in the ACE Surgical Assistant
Program you both save and make money for your facility. See how it adds up:
Reduce Attrition: Your people will be happier working at your facility if they are provided
opportunities to grow and to advance their careers. The ACE Surgical Assistant
Program can be just the right opportunity for both the needs of your staff
and your hospital. Reduced attrition adds up to huge savings.
Increase OR Utilization: Properly trained Surgical Assistants make the surgical case run smoother,
reduce operative times, and speed up room turnover times. All this adds
up to efficiency that helps you utilize the same room for more procedures
– ie generate more surgical revenue.
Retain Your Surgeons: Having a well-trained assisting staff is very valuable to a surgeon. In
fact, surgeons become addicted to their favorite assistants. They won’t
have to impose on their partners or go through the hassle of finding an
outside assistant. None of your surgeons will be required to get up in
the middle of the night to assist. Happy surgeons are recruit-proof.
Recruit New Surgeons: Your Surgical Assistants attract new surgeons to your facility. This is
one very effective recruiting tool. It will reduce their scheduling hassles,
make their surgical experience more pleasant, and reduce the amount of
wasted time that drives most surgeons crazy. You already provide donuts
and lunch just like other hospitals. Why not try something that could
make a real difference. New surgeons mean more patients – priceless.
Reduce Liability: Let’s face it. Your Surgical Techs and OR Nurses are already first
assisting in surgery. They haven’t learned to be good at it and
they aren’t certified to do it. When surgeons can’t find an
assistant or their regular assistant is late or doesn’t show up
at all, somebody from your OR staff steps up. Judge for yourself how much
your liability increases when anyone performs in a role in surgery they
weren’t formally trained and certified for. Discuss it with your
Risk Manager or Compliance Officer. You are probably already concerned
about the trending increase of surgical errors in this industry. A well-trained
Surgical Assistant is far less likely to make such an error and is more
capable of helping your surgeons avoid errors.
Joint Commission Compliance: A Joint Commission site visit is a high stress event for everyone. One
thing they focus on is reviewing personnel records to determine if Surgical
Techs and OR Nurses are trained and certified for what they do. If they
are assisting without proper training and certification, it’ll show
up in this review.
