Quality Assurance Policy
The prosthetist/orthotist is an integral part of the rehabilitation team responsible for returning a patient to a productive and meaningful life following a catastrophic event such as the loss of a limb or the cumulative effects of a congenital disease such as spina bifida. The education, skills and technical knowledge required to handle such cases are extensive, complex, sophisticated and require considerable training. When so much is at stake, the public requires assurance that the clinical facility and the practitioner have the means to completely fulfill their responsibility to the patient.
With our Quality Assurance Program, we attempt to provide this assurance through a process of internal quality control. These controls provide an ongoing method of monitoring the promptness of delivery, appropriateness of fit and overall patient satisfaction while simultaneously promoting the continuing education of professional staff and monitoring their thoroughness of evaluation and documentation. In addition, we ascribe to the Standards and Canons of Professional Ethics as established by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics, Inc.
