Nelson Prosthetic & Orthotic Laboratory is committed to assuring the highest level of competency in the unique services we provide. To meet this commitment, our Company and its professional staff have achieved credentialing by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics & Prosthetics, Inc. (ABC). ABC is the preeminent orthotic and prosthetic credentialing organization in the United States. Their primary goal is to assure that orthotic and/or prosthetic practitioners, as well as the facilities they practice in, meet the highest minimum level of competency for the protection of individuals receiving orthotic and/or prosthetic healthcare.
We are fully accredited by ABC to provide comprehensive clinical, technical and administrative orthotic and/or prosthetic services. This accreditation process involves meeting stringent standards in the following areas:
- Organizational Governance and Administrative Management
- Professional Staff Qualifications and Responsibilities
- Patient Care and Management
- Quality Assessment and Improvement
- Facility and Safety Management
This accreditation informs both our patients, as well as our referral sources, that the highest level of patient care can and should be expected. Facility Accreditation is time limited and must be renewed on a regular basis. This accreditation process includes an on-site review by an ABC sanctioned Facility Accreditation Committee in the areas indicated above.
