OAASC 2017 Annual Conference Information


What are the top three ASC citations issues by the Ohio Department of Health and CMS …infection prevention, infection prevention, infection prevention!


The lack of appropriate infection prevention plans, protocols, or safeguards have impacted 75 percent of surveyed ASCs over the past two years. As a result, inspectors are doubling their efforts to ensure ASCs are meeting requirements with a highly effective infection prevention program!


Are you and your center establishing acceptable protocols for patient safety, appropriately addressing any occurrences, developing an employee IP protocol to reduce cross staff-patient contaminations, attending annual ongoing training or providing appropriate in-service trainings?


There is only one place in Ohio to get AFFORDABLE training and resources you need for your center AND address the most common issues cited in Ohio by inspectors. No need to travel to expensive trainings elsewhere when you can receive ALL that you need for your center here. THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOUR ANNUAL INFECTION PREVENTION TRAINING!


Our four hour pre-conference session on Sept.19 from 9:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in advance of the OAASC annual multidisciplinary conference will cover the multitude of issues and concerns facing ASC professionals on a wide range of infection prevention topics.


Our expert presenters, Robin O. Novak RN, CIC and Cathy Montgomery from Excellentia Advisory Group will provide a fast paced, informative packed program with excellent, evidence-based information covering risk assessments, employee health in IP, inspector findings/resolutions and in depth sterilization protocols to help you build and enhance your current IP program or develop a new one.

An ECONOMICAL, LOCAL and EFFECTIVE infection prevention training that is guaranteed to meet the specific needs of Ohio's ASC professionals!


Attendance will meet CMS and ODH requirements for infection prevention continuing education. All participants will receive a certificate of participation, information for in-service training and continuing education (nursing and BASC – see disclaimer).

You will go home with all the resources you need to meet CDC, CMS and ODH requirements (and most importantly the highest quality of care for your patients) for infection prevention in your center.



If you are coming for the Infection Prevention Pre-conference and/or the regular conference on the next two days, the OAASC is offering special bonus accreditation update sessions. We will have three individual mini sessions for the top three ASC accrediting bodies at no charge for individuals attending the IP session earlier in the and/or the main conference starting the next day.  Hear from our experts on the latest changes to accreditation standards and the what to expect at your next survey. Sign up when you register for the IP seminar or Conference.
