Roylen Griffin, NAAMTA’s Executive Director said, “It’s very satisfying when programs like AeroMD take the NAAMTA Standards and apply them into their daily process and routines. It was equally satisfying that each person employed by AeroMD subscribes and takes personal responsibility for better patient outcome through professional care and safety. Thank you AeroMD for your commitment to compliance, a huge undertaking, and a privilege to welcome you to the NAAMTA alliance.”
