ASC Staffing Roles and Considerations
Administrative EyeCare Jan/Feb 2018
Regina Boore, MS, BSN, RN, CASC
Debra Stinchcomb, MBA, BSN, RN, CASC
Allied Ophthalmic Personnel (AOP) perform a wide variety of tasks and procedures under the direction of a licensed ophthalmologist in the practice setting. They collect data, perform procedures, administer medication and treatments, and supervise patients. Given the importance and value of their role in this setting, it seems logical they could serve in a similar capacity in the Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC).
