OLBH Sleep Lab Receives Program Accreditation
The OLBH Sleep Lab has received program accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
As the national accrediting body for sleep disorders centers and labs, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) is dedicated to setting standards and promoting excellence in sleep medicine heath care, education and research. To receive a five-year accreditation, a sleep laboratory must meet or exceed all standards for professional health care as designated by the AASM. The accreditation process involves detailed inspection of a lab’s facility and staff, including an evaluation of testing procedures, patient contacts, and physician training. Additionally, the facility’s goals must be clearly stated and include plans for positively affecting the quality of medical care in the community it serves. The AASM is a professional medical society for clinicians, researchers, and other health care providers in the field of sleep medicine.
The OLBH Sleep Lab conducts both adult and pediatric sleep studies to diagnose sleep disorders. For more information about the OLBH Sleep Lab, contact the OLBH CareLine at (606)-833-CARE (2273).
