CSV Consultation Visit

The Children’s Surgery Verification (CSV) Consultation Visit is designed to assist hospitals in evaluating their readiness to apply for verification. A consultation site visit will provide a gap analysis in compliance with the Optimal Resources for Children’s Surgical Care standards and will aid the facility in attaining verification. Sites will self-identify areas they would like to focus on; these areas of focus will be selected based on site-identified deficiencies. The Pre-Review Questionnaire (PRQ), Site Visit Agenda, and Site Reviewer Team will be customized to address the needs of the site. Following the site visit, a report will help your institution to close gaps and provide strategies in achieving verification. Additional information about the CSV Consultation Visit, including areas of focus, sample site visit agenda, and process overview, can be found in the Consultation Visit Manual.

To begin the consultation process, please visit the ACS Quality Portal (QPort) and provide details on the Site Visit Request tab.
