Hamilton Regional Sleep Center, part of Hamilton Health Care System, recently earned accreditation for its sleep program through the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC).
“We’re very proud to have earned this advanced certification,” said Jeff Hughes, Cardiovascular Service Line administrator. “It’s part of our commitment to providing excellent care to those in this community.”
ACHC offers a patient-focused approach to sleep accreditation with principles that were developed with direct input from industry professionals to ensure relevant and realistic standards.
ACHS’s consultative approach to accreditation is designed to facilitate a higher quality of patient care while enhancing business efficiencies. In order to remain flexible to the needs of providers, ACHC’s Sleep Accreditation Program offers standards for Sleep Labs/Centers (SLCs) and stand-alone Home Sleep Testing (HST) services.
Hamilton Regional Sleep Center provides evaluations for patients suffering from potentially serious medical conditions such as sleep apnea, insomnia, narcolepsy and restless legs syndrome. The vast majority of patients who have sleep disorders experience daytime sleepiness, a lack of energy, insomnia, nightmares, sleep deprivation or snoring.
“Sleep disorders are widely ignored,” said Hughes. “It’s important to take the symptoms seriously and get tested.”
Overnight sleep testing is provided with state-of-the-art technology by highly trained technologists. The sleep studies are painless and use noninvasive technology to record heart rate, brain waves, breathing, oxygenation, and eye and leg movement. Hospitalization is not required.
