State of the Art Surgery Center Los Angeles, CA
Dr. Hughes and his team of architects, engineers, and physicists set out to create a true state of the art surgery center with meticulous attention to details, patient safety, and infection control. The operating room contains a custom air handler that cycles the entire circulating volume of the operating room 20 times an hour, which means a continuous flow of clean, purified air. The operating room is equipped with ultraviolet light beams that kill microorganisms. Finally, the air is filtered by a MERV 13 filter that removes bacteria and smaller particles from the air. This tripartite system assures that the patient will have the least probability of acquiring an infection.
All of the operating room and recovery room equipment has been individually specced for quality and reliability and has been meticulously inspected and certified. Emergency backup power provides for full function and safety for the patient, no matter what the surgery or its duration, even in the exceptionally rare case of power outage.
All gases to the operating room are piped and routed from fire rated storage shelters, so that the operating room will be safe from anesthetic gases and other flammable substances. The surgery center is fully ADA compliant and our facility is fully compliant with CA title 24 energy conservation legislation. We have the latest sensor systems and advanced led technology to control lighting to fit the needs of the patients and surgical staff in an energy efficient manner. The entire structure is surrounded by steel girders that will withstand earthquakes and other natural disasters.
Our anesthesiologist is board certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology and is Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certified. Our nurses are ACLS certified and infection control certified. You will not find a better team in existence.
Dr. Hughes has spared no expense to create the safest environment for his patients. The surgery center has been fully accredited with the Institute for Medical Quality and meets or exceeds all standards.
