Your Safety during Plastic Surgery is Concern Number One
Plastic Surgery procedures must be kept safe. the facility in which you have your surgery must have and show you the following.
1. Certification Certificate by ideally Quad AAA2. Proof of Registered Nurses on the staff that will be at your surgery. Demand it.3. Proof of licensed surgical technicians on the staff that will be at your surgery.4. Proof of back up power in case of electric failure during your surgery.5. Proof that the operating room sterilizers are checked daily for accuracy and true sterilization.6. Guarantee that an MD anesthesiologist will be at your surgery 100% of time. Get the name of the anesthesiologist and demand he or she call you before your surgery choice is made.7. Ask to speak to the Director of Nurses at the facility and have questions answered by him or her. Discuss, for example, who cleans the surgical instruments.8. Demand proof that anyone introduced as a nurse actually have an RN degree.9. Ask to see the facilities fire and emergency plan.10. Ask to see the facility’s certificate of liability insurance. If injured, this may be your only compensation.11. If the facility keeps you overnight does it have RNs watching you?
The above is a short list.Our facility, the Plastic Surgery Center of Palo Alto is recognized by Stanford University School of Medicine as equal to a Stanford Operating Room.Stanford faculty uses our center.Our PSC is certified by Quad AAAAWe have MD anesthesiologists 100% of the time.we have RNs and STs 100% of the time.we are a first rate world class facility. Our record is perfect. Our facility is called the Plastic Surgery Center of Palo Alto. we are located at 1515 El Camino Real, Palo Alto. Our facility is owned by world class surgeons Drs Michael Papalian, Kim Seung, Ernest Kaplan, and George Commons (all certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and Fellows of the American College of Surgeons.) never accept less.
Avoid dangerous cut rate, cheap facilities. There are reasons they are cheap and none are in your interest. some MD doctors run cheap cut rate facilities so they can make more money. Death and disaster are all too ofter the result. you want a great result that you can enjoy. you will not get this in cut rate low cost facilities. Instead of happiness and life’s joy, you get the intensive care unit and possibly the morgue in cut rate facilities. please use common sense. There are many great facilities. then, there are the horrible cut rate dangerous facilities where you may die. please do not be a fool. I do much medical legal consultation in my legal medical practice, and certainly see much death and disaster. Be a smart thoughtful consumer. Seek and obtain quality, safety, and perfection. Prices that seem too good to be true are not true, and the final results can be deadly.
