Patients having surgery expect a safe physical environment no matter where the procedure is performed. The presenters will discuss changes to the requirements for surgery facilities in the 2014 edition of the Facility Guidelines Institute Guidelines for Design and Construction of Hospitals and Outpatient Facilities intended to ensure the provision of equivalent environments for surgical services in hospitals and outpatient settings and to respond to current trends in the delivery of care. They will also review new guidelines for hybrid operating rooms and updated requirements for sterile processing in the surgical suite. This session will enable attendees to:
Explain the differences between an ambulatory operating room and a procedure room, including what types of procedures are performed in each and allowable reductions in the size of the operating room.
Describe the requirements for a sterile processing room in a surgical suite.
Identify the key requirements for a hybrid operating room.
Discuss the updated requirements for office-based surgery facilities.
