Safety, comfort and care.
We take extreme measures to ensure the safest environment for our patients, and not just while they are under anesthesia. We provide dedicated patient care from the moment surgery is scheduled, all the way to discharge and beyond. Our planning begins long before we meet you, as we research your health history and read case studies and medical journals chronicling the surgery you plan to have, and the risks that go along with it. We create an anesthetic plan that will afford you the highest possible level of safety, while maximizing comfort and enabling a fast recovery. Then, we provide your post-operative care and pain management, keeping you safe and comfortable through your hospital stay, as well as your return to home and normal activity.
We’ve fostered a culture and track record of unsurpassed safety, relentlessly measuring outcomes, addressing patient risk and implementing processes to drive the best possible outcomes. PAA consistently scores above benchmark on the National Anesthesia Clinical Outcomes Registry (NACOR), which sets the standard for 16,000 anesthesiologists nationally. We developed LongLives Anesthesia Pathways to bring an evidence-based framework to every patient we serve. This system includes crisis checklists, which reduce missteps by 70% when used during an uncommon medical event; a collection of published, vetted guidelines and tools that provide very specific direction for a myriad of patient concerns; and a database of up-to-date patient care initiatives, providing a wealth of knowledge on various patient populations and disease states.
