Abstract

The specialty of gastrointestinal endoscopy has evolved to the point where it requires specific attention to many aspects of facility design and unit management. Important design elements that require consideration include regulatory mandates, space planning, and infrastructure for health-care facilities, with specific attention to water supplies, forced air, vacuum capability, and waste disposal. Experience has generated numerous specific recommendations for design of the individual portions of the endoscopy suite to enhance both quality and efficiency. Administrative oversight is required for issues specific to physician, nursing, and business concerns. Besides those tasks common to most of health care (such as licensure, competency, and personnel issues) administrative arenas include scheduling of procedures and staff; purchasing of endoscopes, therapeutic devices, and endoscopic databases; reprocessing of endoscopes and related infection control issues; accreditation; efficiency and quality improvement efforts.
