Horizon Family Medical Group (HFMG) is a large, multi-specialty medical group practice located in New York. In addition to a successful build-out of two endoscopy suites, we continue to manage their accreditation to comply with the New York State Department of Health Office Based Surgery (OBS) regulation. Our latest project with HFMG is towards certification of an urgent care center as soon as construction is completed. Future projects include The Joint Commission accreditation of all care centers and Patient Centered Specialty Practice with the National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA).
HFMG came to Fatima David Accreditation six years ago to build and accredit an endoscopy suite. This accreditation project was a success, and we continue to train the staff in other areas to maintain their compliance as an accredited office-based surgery practice. These trainings include: OSHAs Blood Borne Pathogen and Hazard Communication, conducting mock drills on patient emergency, and fire safety protocol.
Soon after, HMFG built and accredited a second endoscopy suite with Fatima David Accreditation. For this project, we worked with HFMG to train and coach Registered Nurse Managers. Fatima David Accreditation ensured that HFMG was well prepared both for their facility survey, and to practice as an accredited facility on a daily basis.
Fatima David Accreditation continues to provide a hands-on approach to training nurse managers, which contributes tremendously to patient safety and quality of care. Based on patient satisfaction surveys, both staff and patients are extremely pleased with our services.
