The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) recognized Gastroenterology Associates, P.A., with a three-year renewed recognition status for quality and safety as part of its program specifically dedicated to promoting quality endoscopy.
Gastroenterology Associates is the only endoscopy facility in the Unifour area to receive this recognition. To date, more than 400 endoscopy units have been recognized by ASGE.
The ASGE Endoscopy Unit Recognition Program honors endoscopy units that have demonstrated a commitment to patient safety and quality in endoscopy by meeting the program’s rigorous criteria and guidelines on privileging, quality assurance, endoscope reprocessing, CDC infection control guidelines, and ensuring endoscopy staff competency.
“We are proud to be recognized once again by ASGE for our efforts to enhance quality and safety in our endoscopy unit,” said Terry Thomas, RN, CGRN, clinical manager for Gastroenterology Associates. “Through ongoing education and continued compliance with the ASGE Endoscopy Unit Recognition Program, we demonstrate our dedication to the delivery of high quality patient care.”
