AAHA standard sample protocols

A well-written and up-to-date protocol is just as important as any other important documentation, such as a current employee handbook, and AAHA strives to support members when they are revamping protocols or creating new ones.

Written protocols are not mandatory to achieve AAHA accreditation, however, they can help structure your practice’s culture and continue to elevate your standard of care. By incorporating standard operating procedures and protocols into your practice, you help establish your practice's continued success.

AAHA has provided a variety of sample protocol templates below to AAHA members to help ensure your practice is providing the best standard of care. We recommend that you keep track of any additions or revisions you make as you go along.
