This week on the ASC Podcast with John Goehle we discuss the latest news for the industry and talk about the requirements of Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act which requires ASCs to provide patients with limited English proficiency with access to translation services and includes posting requirements. In our focus segment this week, we look closely at the registration function and the requirements for registering a patient. Our question of the week is about transporting sterile instruments after the procedure.
