Providence Animal Hospital & Pet Resort became accredited with the American Animal HospitalAssociation (AAHA) in January 2013. This makes PAH & PR the first locally owned, stand alone veterinary hospital in Wilson County and Mt. Juliet built from the ground up to meet these rigorous standards. Once a practice decides to seek accreditation, they contact AAHA and begin the process of reviewing the standards and preparing for an onsite evaluation.
The preparation portion involves the entire practice team and typically takes three-to-six months to prepare. The evaluation includes a quality assessment review of the hospital’s facility, medical equipment, practice methods and pet health care management.
Only 15 percent of all small animal veterinary practices in the U.S. have achieved accreditation by AAHA. In order to maintain accredited status, each hospital must continue to be evaluated at least once every three years by the association’s practice consultants.
Veterinary practices choose to become AAHA-accredited for a myriad of reasons, including the desire to improve practice operations and team building, update their skills, enhance their credibility with clients, strive for continuous improvement and have challenging benchmarks to reach.
Choosing an AAHA-accredited hospital assures pet owners that the hospital they select has the staff, equipment, medical procedures and facilities that AAHA believes are vital for delivering high-quality and modern veterinary care.
Veterinary medicine is regulated by state agencies, and each state maintains its own minimum regulations. Although AAHA-accreditation is voluntary, AAHA is the only organization in the US and Canada that accredits companion animal hospitals based on standards that go above and beyond state regulations.
The AAHA Standards of Accreditation include more than 900 individual standards, divided into 19 major sections including patient care, surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, pet health records, cleanliness, emergency services, dental and nursing care, diagnostic imaging, anesthesiology, and continuing education. https://www.aaha.org/pet_owner/about_aaha/default.aspx
