It is with great honor that we present Dr. Paul Schnur the Distinguished Service Award. This award is given to AAAASF surveyors who have served actively for a minimum of ten years and who have demonstrated a commitment to our mission of patient safety and a desire to enhance the accreditation and survey process.
Dr. Schnur had the following to say about this honor:
“About the time I retired from active practice, AAAASF gained deemed status from Medicare. Since I had more time, I started doing more surveys. I have thoroughly enjoyed the past 20 years participating as an active surveyor for AAAASF. It has been my pleasure to work with the very knowledgeable and helpful outstanding AAAASF staff. I have had many memorable times performing surveys across the West and Southwest.
It is with sadness that I retire from doing surveys for AAAASF. I am proud, pleased, and honored to accept the Surveyor Distinguished Service Award. I will always treasure it. Thank you.”
