OAASC members, ASC non-members or companies that work with Ambulatory Surgery Centers in Ohio join us for Ohio's only conference dedicated to ambulatory surgery centers.  We address ALL the issues important to your center and especially focus on those concerns that impact you as an Ohio ASC professional.  There continue to be significant changes in ASC licensure in Ohio.  Our conference will address all of those changes and then some. 


On September 18 as a part of our pre-conference, we will host a comprehensive pre-conference infection prevention training for ASC IP professional (remember, you need annual training to meet CMS requirement AND NOW ODH REQUIRES OHIO-SPECIFIC ISSUE TRAINING).  Every ASC in Ohio (not just Medicare certified centers) must have a dedicated infection prevention staff person who receives ongoing training on Ohio specific issues and provides in-service training to other staff.  This IP training will meet that requirement. And if you attend this as a part of the conference there is a discount.


Join your ASC Colleagues from around Ohio for the premier state ASC conference in the Midwest.  September 18-20.

Infection Prevention Training for ASCs

 Full Day Pre-conference Session Sept 18

Did you know that ODH is requesting that ASCs have continuing education on Ohio-specific infection prevention citations? And you know what the top citation ODH finds…infection prevention –lack of appropriate plans, lack of oversite, lack of annual IP professional training and lack of in-service training.

In the past two years, 80 percent of surveyed ASCs have been cited for some lack of infection prevention controls. Are you sure that you are meeting requirements with a highly effective infection prevention program?

Nationally recognized ASC infection prevention (and Ohio’s own) expert Elethia Dean will share her Ohio-specific perspectives on:

  • Top Ohio IP Citations – What are they, what are the details behind them and can your center avoid them.
  • Statistics for the ASC IP professional – Knowing how to correctly calculate your center’s data.
  • Tracking Surgical Site Infections APPROPRIATELY in an ASC setting.
  • Proper, appropriate and complete components of an IP Plan.
  • Conducting a CORRECT annual/as needed IP assessment

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.
