H


ave a question regarding your ASC? Connect with thousands


of other ASC professionals on ASCA Connect, ASCA’s members-only on- line networking community, and get real-world answers from your colleagues around the country in minutes. Recent discussions on ASCA Connect include contacting patients at home fol- lowing their surgical procedure, using licensed practical nurses in surgery cen- ters and verifying that patients have a safe ride home from your ASC. In ASCA Connect, you can do much more than just ask and answer questions. Download important


documents and


sample forms, upload your own files and resources to share, access a comprehen- sive ASC community calendar and more.


You can also sync your ASCA Connect profile with your LinkedIn profile to maximize networking opportunities with your ASC peers. To join the conversation, please visit


www.ascaconnect.org and enter your email address and password. If you have never logged in before, your password is your last name, case sensitive. Once you are logged in, click on the “Com- munities” tab and then click on the green “Join” button next to “ASCA Members Community.” You will then be prompted to select


how you would like to receive discus- sion messages. The default recom- mendation is to receive a daily digest in an email each morning. That single email message will contain all of the


messages posted in ASCA Connect the day before.

From there you can access the latest ASCA Connect discussions, post a message to the community, check your inbox, read ASCA announcements and more. If you have questions about ASCA
