Life Flight Network achieves Medical Transport Accreditation – NAAMTA
Subsequent to a comprehensive medical transport accreditation audit of administrative documentation, medical practices, and operational facilities, NAAMTA is awarding Life Flight Network full medical transport accreditation for their fixed-wing, rotor-wing, and ground NAAMTA accreditation is the result of compliance to standards that focus on safety and quality patient care.
Life Flight Network was able to demonstrate compliance to each of the defined standards, identify best practice procedures, and demonstrate a culture of safety and teamwork. NAAMTA found their compliance to be evident through process reviews, employee interviews, and on-site evaluations, all of which were conducted using ISO 9001:2008 auditing.
As a result of accreditation, Life Flight Network is welcomed as a NAAMTA Alliance member, and is thus entitled to all associated benefits. The NAAMTA Alliance unifies accredited organizations in the promotion of continuous improvement.
NAAMTA salutes Life Flight Network for achieving accreditation and looks forward to the contributions they will share with Roylen Griffin, Executive Director at NAAMTA, stated: “It is a great pleasure for me to conclude the auditing process of Life Flight Network by awarding them NAAMTA accreditation. The knowledge, experience, and dedication of each person that I came in contact with were evident. I have always said, ‘Good equipment, good training and good people lead to good outcomes.’ Life Flight Network has demonstrated excellence in all three. Life Flight Network will be an extraordinary addition to the NAAMTA alliance.”
Michael Griffiths, Chief Executive Officer for Life Flight Network, responded by saying; “We thank NAAMTA for the extremely thorough audit process. Achieving NAAMTA accreditation is an important milestone and another validation of Life Flight Network’s high standards. We’re honored to become a NAAMTA Alliance member and look forward to more collaboration in our quest for continuous improvement.”
