SRMC Achieves Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence Designation

Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center Achieves National Accreditation from the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program

Patients seeking surgical treatment for severe obesity and its related conditions have a high-quality choice for receiving treatment at a nationally accredited program that meets the highest standards for patient safety and quality of care in the greater Fredericksburg area.

Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Director at Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center, Mohammad Jamal, MD, announced its bariatric surgical center has been accredited as a COMPREHENSIVE Center under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP), a joint program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).

The MBSAQIP Standards, outlined in the Resources for Optimal Care of the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Patient 2014 ensure that bariatric surgical patients receive a multidisciplinary program, not just a surgical procedure, which improves patient outcomes and long-term success. The accredited center offers preoperative and postoperative care designed specifically for their patients.

“This is a very important milestone and truly speaks to the excellent care provided by this program and the commitment of the team,” said Greg Madsen, CEO of Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center.

CPOE Go-Live – August 25th

The Advanced Clinicals team has successfully relaunched CPOE at SRMC. In preparation for the go-live, which occurred on August 25th, the team developed evidenced-based order sets and completed many individualized training sessions. The launch includes:

  • Development of evidence-based order sets that will improve patient safety and reduce ordering time
  • Standardized templates that allow providers to enter and edit documentation while ensuring compliance with ICD-10, and
  • A new, stream-lined discharge process that allows all discharge processes to occur in one place

For your convenience a HOTLINE has been established that will allow you to set up a time for training or to receive assistance with order entry or physician documentation. Call the HOTLINE at x 4500 (inside the facility) or 540-498-4500 (outside the facility).

Thank you for your cooperation in making this a success!
