Forest Road Day Surgery was designed after comprehensive consultation with patients and surgeons regarding various aspects of the facility – from the colour scheme to furniture selection (including patient trolleys) to spatial requirements in the theatre, laser and recovery areas. Our waiting areas even feature special acoustic treatments to ensure a quiet and calm environment for patients and carers.
Forest Road Day Surgery is owned and managed by Vision Eye Institute, an established operator of numerous day surgeries and medical clinics in NSW, VIC, SA and QLD. Vision Eye Institute’s long-standing experience in running specialist healthcare facilities, together with its recognised quality management systems, helps to ensure optimal outcomes for all patients.
Forest Road Day Surgery is licensed with the NSW Ministry of Health.
And because your comfort and care are our priorities, we are also accredited to ISO 9001 Quality Management Standards and the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards.
ISO 9001 is one of the most recognisable international standards for quality management – certification indicates that an organisation’s service or product meets a certain level of quality. ISO 9001 is the standard accepted by the NSW Ministry of Health and all private health funds.
The Australian NSQHS Standards were developed to protect the public from harm and improve the quality of health care.
A surveillance audit is undertaken regularly to ensure that our processes are monitored, maintained and reviewed and that improvements are continuously implemented. A re-certification audit is conducted every 3 years, with all safety and quality processes assessed to ensure the standards required by ISO 9001 and the NSQHS are still being met.
As a registered healthcare service, antimicrobial control is a critical part of our successful operation. Antimicrobial stewardship, together with infection prevention/control and hand hygiene, is a key strategy at Forest Road Day Surgery to encourage safe and appropriate use of antimicrobials, reduce patient harm and decrease the incidence of resistance.
The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care has identified improved healthcare worker hand hygiene as the highest priority area to reduce the risk of healthcare-associated infections. Forest Road Day Surgery staff adhere to a rigorous, facility-wide hand hygiene program that is Hand Hygiene Australia–compliant.
