Rockdale Animal Hospital was recently reaccredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). The process included a quality assessment review of the hospital’s practice protocols, medical equipment, facility and client service.
“I would like to congratulate Rockdale Animal Hospital on achieving accreditation through AAHA,” said Michael Cavanaugh, DVM, DABVP, AAHA executive director. “They are clearly committed to doing their very best as evidenced by the hard work and effort they put into this voluntary process.”
Accreditation is a voluntary commitment practices make to their clients and patients, and AAHA is the only organization in the U.S. and Canada that accredits animal hospitals based on standards that go beyond state regulations.
Only 15 percent of all small animal hospitals in the U.S. have achieved accreditation by the Association. To maintain accredited status, Rockdale Animal Hospital must continue to be evaluated regularly by AAHA.
The AAHA Standards of Accreditation, viewed as the standard of veterinary excellence, contain more than 900 individual standards, divided into 18 major sections. These areas of focus include: patient care and pain management, surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, medical records, cleanliness, emergency services, dental care, diagnostic imaging, anesthesiology, and continuing education.
Rockdale Animal Hospital, located at 1995 Flat Shoals Rd in Conyers, has been accredited with the association since 1997 and can be reached at 770-922-8600 or online at www.rockdaleanimalhospital.com.
