The Essential Components of Cardiac Cath Lab Accreditation

  • Governance: Recommends proven practices to orchestrate, monitor, and optimize clinical practices.
  • Quality: Integrates continuous improvement of all aspects of care.
  • Pre-Procedure: A standardized assessment process for patients before undergoing a heart catheterization to ensure quality and patient safety are first and foremost.
  • Peri-Procedure: Care coordination in the procedure room for sedation, infection control, radiation safety and universal protocol and time out procedures.
  • Post-Procedure: Appropriate hand-off to a cath recovery unit, access site management and monitoring and tracking complications, physician to patient and family communication, and discharge instructions and patient information for follow-up.
  • Clinical Quality: Active participation in PI initiatives derived from the NCDR CathPCI Executive Summary Metrics.
