NCSA: The Beacon of Patient Safety
Since it was founded in 1949, the NCSA has been one of the premier organizations of physician anesthesiologists dedicated to educational advancement, patient safety, and the best possible medical care for the residents of North Carolina. The Society has been an important voice in the field of medicine on both the state and national levels, and remains North Carolina’s strongest advocate for patient safety.
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are responsible for ensuring the safety and comfort of patients undergoing surgical procedures of all types, the relief of pain, and the delivery of critical care medicine to patients in the intensive care unit.
This process starts well before the operating room and continues after the patient leaves the recovery room making Anesthesiologists leaders in the perioperative process. The North Carolina Society of Anesthesiologists is an association of these physicians from all across North Carolina who are committed to the highest standards of care and the safety for our patients.
