Rock River Valley Blood Center Earns AABB Accreditation

Rockford, IL (PRWEB) August 14, 2013

The Rock River Valley Blood Center (RRVBC) has received a 2-year AABB accreditation for donor center activities based on an intensive 3-day, on-site assessment. During the 3-day assessment, specially trained assessors determined that the quality and operational systems in place within RRVBC were at a level of technical, operational and administrative performance that met or exceeded the standards set by the AABB, according to RRVBC CEO, Linda Gerber. The AABB Accreditation Program, recognized by the International Society for Quality in Healthcare (ISQua), assesses compliance with AABB standards, the Code of Federal Regulations, as well as, other federal guidance documents.

“While we receive numerous mandated federal and state regulatory audits and inspections, the AABB’s Accreditation assessment is a voluntary program,” Gerber explained. “RRVBC participates in the Accreditation program because it assists facilities worldwide in achieving excellence by promoting a level of professional and technical expertise that contributes to quality performance and patient safety.” RRVBC has been a member of AABB since the blood center first opened in 1952 and continuously accredited since 1958 when AABB first began the program.

The Rock River Valley Blood Center serves as a centralized, community blood center and is the sole provider of blood products and services to Beloit Memorial Hospital, Edgerton Hospital and Health Services, FHN, Mercy Harvard Hospital, OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center, Rochelle Community Hospital, Rockford Health System, SwedishAmerican Health System and SwedishAmerican Medical Center—Belvidere.

Established in 1947, AABB is an international, not for profit association dedicated to the advancement of science and the practice of transfusion medicine and related biological therapies. The association is committed to improving health by developing and delivering standards, accreditation and educational programs and services to optimize patient and donor care and safety.
