All surgical procedures at Accent on You are performed in an accredited surgical center. These credentials certify that the best techniques will be used for your care and that your procedure is performed in a safe, sterile environment. Dr. Nakamura is a board-certified plastic surgeon affiliated with the Methodist Mansfield Medical Center, Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital, and Medical Center of Arlington. We also have an accredited surgery center on-site with a minimum of five nurses in the building to assist our patients.
When it comes to accreditation, patient safety is of the greatest importance. An accredited surgery center meets strict guidelines for the safety of the environment, equipment, and personnel credentials. These guidelines significantly lower the risk of complications because patients are constantly monitored by licensed professionals who have access to all necessary medical equipment needed in case a problem arises during surgery. Accreditation is reevaluated yearly through a self-survey and every three years with an on-site survey so that you can feel confident about the safety of your surgical environment and equipment used.
QUAD A is a global accreditation organization developed in 1977 by a committee within the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (ASPRS). Their physician-founded and led organization has created the standard for high-quality healthcare in thousands of healthcare facilities. Accreditation requirements include:
- All surgeons are board-certified, practice within their specialty, and have hospital privileges
- All staff members are fully licensed and certified
- Anesthesia is administered by a professional anesthesiologist
- The surgical environment, equipment, drugs, and all other components are sterile and safe to use
Accent on You meets all of these requirements. Dr. Nakamura and our team are committed to the best possible care for our patients and our surgery center has held a Certificate of Accreditation since 2005.
