- American Academy of Sleep Medicine Recognizes Excellence in Quality Care –
The Bon Secours Sleep Disorder Institute at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center recently achieved reaccreditation through August 2019 from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM).
Having recently passed a site visit from the AASM, The Sleep Disorder Institute successfully demonstrated dedication to clinical excellence, high quality care and its commitment to enhance the awareness of sleep as an important element of health, safety and quality of life.
AASM Accreditation of Sleep Disorders Centers is considered the gold standard for evaluating and comparing sleep medicine programs and facilities nationwide. The Sleep Disorder Institute’s reaccreditation demonstrates the staff’s ongoing efforts to provide patients with high quality diagnostic services and long-term management of sleep disorders.
The Sleep Disorder Institute is one of the select few accredited sleep centers that offer home-sleep testing. When clinically indicated, those patients participating in home-sleep tests are supplied with equipment that measures their breathing patterns while sleeping. The test enables the institutes to offer broader diagnostic options to patients suffering from sleep apnea, while demonstrating a commitment to quality services.
If you are a loud, habitual snorer, feel tired and groggy upon awakening, experience sleepiness and fatigue during waking hours, are overweight, or tend to choke, gasp or hold your breath during sleep, you may be suffering from an undiagnosed sleep disorder.
