Pam Bray, RN, Director of Nursing/Director of Inpatient Services, indicated that “Dale's certification is the first step for accreditation of the Echocardiogram program at KCH. The next step in the process is the development of policies and procedures in collaboration with UPMC and UPMC Hamot's Non Invasive Cardiac Services Department.”
The certifying body for accreditation is the ICAEL, Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiolography Laboratories. The goal of this commission is to ensure high quality patient care and high quality echocardiographic imaging and interpretation by the accredited facility. All technologists and physicians working in the echocardiogram program must attain and maintain certain standards for acquiring images, and interpreting images, through continuing education and conferences.
Dale has worked at KCH for more than twenty years. He is also a Paramedic with EmergyCare.
Please join the KCH Family in congratulating Dale on this great professional accomplishment and for helping accreditation of the Kane Community Hospital program.
