Madison County EMS in Kentucky has received accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services for its compliance with national standards of excellence. Madison County EMS is one of only 178 ambulance services in the country to successfully complete the voluntary review process which included competition of a comprehensive application and on-site review by national experts in emergency medical services (EMS). With this achievement, Madison County EMS becomes only the fourth ambulance service to be accredited in Kentucky.
The Commission is a non-profit organization which was established to encourage and promote quality care in America’s medical transportation system. The primary focus of the Commission’s standards is high-quality patient care. This is accomplished by establishing national standards which not only address the delivery of patient care, but also the ambulance service’s total operation and its relationships with other agencies, the general public, and the medical community. The Commission’s standards often exceed state and local licensing requirements.
Carlos B. Coyle, Director said accreditation “represents our firm commitment to our patients and community. We continuously strive to do our best and we viewed accreditation as another step 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,” said Coyle. “Everyone here played a valuable role in our ability to meet the Commission’s high standards. We have achieved accreditation but I believe it can only be a stimulus for continued improvement.”
