Facility Accreditation

Non-hospital medical and surgical facilities fall into one of three categories:

  • Class 1
    Provides general anesthesia and major regional anesthesia (epidural, spinal nerve blocks) and may include use of IV sedation and/or analgesia, or local anesthesia only.
  • Class 2
    Provides use of IV sedation and/or analgesia where the patient remains responsive and breathes without assistance.
  • Class 3
    Provides local anesthesia only. May provide oral sedation but not IV sedation/analgesia or inhalants.

This section provides new and existing facilities with the necessary forms and documentation regarding administrative requirements and operations of a non-hospital medical and surgical facility.
