Scope of Care
The scope of service of the Lexington Surgery Center is to focus on providing quality care and communication to our patients, physician specialists, and payors. Our primary focus is to provide a safe, secure, surgical experience and respond to the needs of the patient. Our services will be professional, courteous, helpful, and cooperative.
Services provided by Lexington Surgery Center, Ltd. include Surgical, Endoscopy, Anesthesia, Pain Management, Radiology (limited), Pathology, and Nursing Care. The individual credentialing process and the delineation of privileges for their specialty is the approval process for all procedures completed by the physician. All nursing staff are licensed by the state and CPR certified with the majority of the nursing staff ACLS and PALS certified, too. PALS certified staff will be on site when pediatric patients are present.
Patient assessment, not age, is the determining criteria for potential patients. A person who is assessed an ASA class I or II will be a candidate for surgery at this facility. A person who is assessed an ASA class III or greater will be done at the discretion of the Surgeon and Anesthesiologist. Special patient requirements or needs will be assessed on an individual basis and decision made if the facilities scope of care can meet the patient’s complete needs. This will be a joint decision by the physician, anesthesia, and the facility management.
The level of care provided to the patient will be the best care possible. Community standards, AAAHC, AORN, ASPAN, and SGNA standards will be a guideline for the scope of care provided.
All medical care will be provided by licensed professional staff. Staffing will be maintained at a level of competency to meet standard of care and the patient’s needs. Age specific pharmaceuticals and equipment will be available. Support services for individual patient requirements will be provided through community services and resources.
The employment of professional medical staff will be by fulltime, part-time, and PRN staff. This variety of staffing allows for continuity, competency, and provides the availability of adequate staffing for a diverse surgery schedule.
All patients will be treated with the utmost respect and care. We are an equal opportunity employer and provider. All patients will be assessed and care provided according to the approved policy and procedure of the facility.
