RPS gets accreditation

Posted

Regional Paramedical Services (RPS) in Jasper has announced that it has received accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services for its compliance with national standards of excellence. 

RPS is one of more than 180 ambulance services in the country to successfully complete the voluntary review process. Company officials said it is only one of four accredited agencies by state ambulance services to be accredited in Alabama.

David Waid, chief operations officer, said accreditation "represents our firm commitment to our patients and community. We continuously strive to do our best and we viewed accreditation as another stop toward excellence.

"Our staff has been key to our successful completion of the process. I think it gives the feeling of prestige and pride to work in an accredited ambulance service. Everyone here played a valuable role in our ability to meet the commission's high standard. We have achieved accreditation but I believe it can only be a stimulus for continued improvement."
