QRCR Enrollment/Recertification Underway Now

January 21, 2009

In these tough economic times it’s important to do whatever you can to set your facility apart from the crowd.

The AARC’s Quality Respiratory Care Recognition (QRCR) program is a great way to do just that, and now is the time to earn the designation. The annual open enrollment/recertification period kicked off January 1 and runs through March 31.

QRCR is available for hospitals, home care providers, and long term care providers that meet a strict set of standards. The program is aimed at helping consumers make choices about their health care by recognizing facilities that promote patient safety by providing access to respiratory therapists to deliver their care.

Facilities that earn the designation are listed on the Association’s consumer web site, YourLungHealth.Org, and each QRCR organization is provided with a press release it can customize for local media to publicize the award. Many facilities receive great press every year for earning the designation.

So learn more about the QRCR program today and consider how it can help you inform your community about the quality respiratory care you provide everyday on the job.
