Strategy Anesthesia specializes in providing anesthesia for outpatient procedures in the office and procedures performed in ambulatory surgery centers. Prior to a procedure requiring anesthesia services, a history, and physical examination is completed and documented no more than 30 days before or 24 hours after admission.
Our medical records include an updated examination of the patient (if they had been examined 30 days prior to the procedure), which includes any changes in the patient’s condition. We are in complete compliance with The Joint Commission’s Standards Interpretation Group and do history and physical for any patients receiving moderate or deep sedation in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
Our policy and procedures are approved by the medical staff to remain in compliance. Moderate or deep sedation is performed in the ambulatory surgery suite for many procedures, some of which are endoscopies, pain procedures, cardiac catheterizations, and interventional radiology to name a few.
