GILLETTE, WY – Campbell County Health (CCH)
Rehabilitation Services has received a three-year facility accreditation from the
Board of Certification/Accreditation (BOC) for Orthotics and Prosthetics practitioners.
BOC assures patients, physicians, professional organizations, the public-at-large,
and government agencies and representatives, of the competence, professionalism
and safe practice environments of BOC-certified professionals and/or BOC-accredited
facilities. BOC facility accreditation shows patients a commitment to
the highest standards of care.
The Board of Certification/Accreditation (BOC), founded in 1984, is an
independent, not-for-profit agency dedicated to meeting the demands for
quality patient care by offering highly valued credentials for professionals
and suppliers of comprehensive orthotic and prosthetic (O&P) care
and durable medical equipment (DME) services.
Campbell County Health has two certified practitioners and one resident
on staff. Bob Larson is a certified Orthotist and Todd Jensen is a certified
Prosthetist. Brodie Rice is an Orthotic & Prosthetic Resident.
An Orthotist is responsible for the manufacture and management of orthoses
(orthotics). An orthosis may be used to control, guide, limit and/or immobilize
an extremity, joint or body segment for a particular reason. A Prothetist
is a professional who measures, designs, fabricates, fits, or services a
prosthesis as prescribed by a licensed
physician, and who assists in the formulation of the prosthesis prescription for
the replacement of external parts of the human body lost due to
congenital deformities or absences.
These practitioners provide care for patients of all ages, from infants
to geriatrics, treating orthotic and prosthetic conditions from the toe
to the head. A physician referral is recommended for orthotic and prosthetic services.
