Change Lives and Transform the World with Improved Surgical Care!
By Dan Bump, President, CEO ACE Surgical Assisting, Inc.
What are the results of increasing the level of skill in surgery? Improved
patient outcomes and fewer surgical mistakes. The first assistant is the
only team member who gets as close to the action as the surgeon does –
close enough to do the patient harm or accomplish great good. ACE training
makes a difference.
According to WebMD an estimated 4,044 surgical mistakes happen every year
in the United States and they admit this is probably a huge underestimate.
Imagine the world-wide numbers! Our first assistant training changes lives
one patient at a time. If we can train enough assistants, we’ll
eventually reach a tipping point where lives are changed on such a massive
scale that we transform the world.
One busy RNFA will contribute to an improved level of surgical care for
around a 1,000 patients a year. That’s 10,000 patients over a ten
year period! What a dramatic impact in the world.
Now consider what happens if we just train 100 assistants a year. They
will impact over 1 million patients in a 10 year period. 10 years of training
has a 10 million patient impact. That sounds great but in a world with
a population of over 7.4 billion, we are going to have to train a lot
more to reach a tipping point.
Life Changing For Patients
An ACE Trained Assistant is very different from a glorified retractor holder
or even someone who can close wounds. He or she escalates the skills and
knowledge applied to patient care in 2 ways. First, the patient enjoys
improved surgical outcomes. Second, this kind of assistant has the wherewithal
to avoid her own surgical mistakes and to effectively help the surgeon
avoid mistakes. That’s not just life-changing,
Life Changing For Assistants
ACE training improves the outlook on life for RNFAs and gives them a greater
sense of purpose. They love surgery and they are the only ones on the
entire team to get as close to the surgical action as the surgeon. They
enjoy greater challenge, responsibility, and opportunity to earn the respect
and trust of the surgeon. Finally, the RNFA is uniquely positioned to
earn a life-changing income. Many earn mid 6-figure incomes.
Life Changing For Surgeons
When an ACE assistant prevents a surgical mistake, she saves her surgeon
the heartbreak of unintentionally harming the patient and any resulting
lawsuit. The surgeon enjoys the procedure more because he knows the assistant
has his back. He doesn’t have to keep such a close eye on his trusted
ACE Trained Assistant and that allows him to focus more intensely on the
procedure without distraction, assuring a safe and successful surgery.
This speeds things up in a safe way and more surgeries can be scheduled
in a day. By the way, surgeons won’t have to first assist each other
and that changes everything. It frees up precious time. More time for
patients; more time for practice-building; and more time for family.
ACE training impacts the lives of everyone it touches. Patients, ACE Trained
Assistants, surgeons, and the families of everyone involved. It’s
not hard to see how the quality of training we deliver coupled with enrolling
large numbers of students will have a transforming effect on the world.
