In Reply: The existence of the documents to
which Ms Good refers does not negate what we said about lack of accepted practice
standards. NH-PAI's 1998 membership was 1100,1

Meaningful standards require demonstrable ability to perform a procedure.
What NH-PAI refers to as standards requires no such demonstration.
