AAAASF’s Guide to Re-Opening an AAAASF-Accredited Facility After Closure Due to COVID-19 is now available. This information is published and current as of April 23, 2020. This situation is fluid and information may change rapidly – AAAASF will update this list as appropriate.
Please note, unless specifically waived by the AAAASF Central Office, facilities must be in compliance with all Program and Class specific AAAASF standards prior to resuming operations. AAAASF-accredited facilities may not begin providing care under AAAASF-defined Class B, C-M, or C anesthesia until sufficient anesthesia delivery equipment, monitoring equipment, and emergency equipment has been returned or replaced and has been certified to be in proper condition, to accommodate all cases and recovering patients. Prior to this, the AAAASF-accredited facility may begin to start conducting AAAASF-defined Class A cases in the interim.
If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact the AAAASF Central office.
