"The company's commitment to patient safety is not new. Quality control standards at Desert Radiologists have been demonstrated at all levels of the practice since its inception in 1966. In fact, we require all employees to complete annual safety training and pass an exam to demonstrate their understanding of the safety program," said William P. Moore II, Desert Radiologists CEO. "Prefilled single-use syringes, our annual safety training program and our ACR accreditation are just timely events that demonstrate our continued safe practices."

Using prefilled single-use syringes reduces the risk of infection, contamination and medication errors. Other benefits include, color-coded labels eliminate the risks associated with unlabeled syringes as well as meeting regulatory requirements. Prefilled single-use syringes reduce preparation time and meet the requirement of using the most ready-to-use products available.

Over the past year, Desert Radiologists completed the rigorous process of accrediting all modalities at all facilities. This required submitting 42 detailed applications to the ACR for inspection and review. Desert Radiologists has met ACR accreditation requirements since 1990, two years before this first became mandatory for mammography.

ACR accreditation ensures that our centers have voluntarily gone through a stringent review process to meet nationally accepted standards; personnel are well qualified, through education and certification, to perform and interpret medical images and administer radiation therapy treatments; equipment is appropriate for the test or treatment; and the facility meets or exceeds quality assurance and safety guidelines.
