NRMC Sleep Center Earns Accreditation

3/7/2018

Nevada Regional Medical Center proudly announces its approval of accreditation status by Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) for the NRMC Sleep Center.



“At NRMC, we are being proactive about providing a safe and quality patient experience,” says Wes Braman, Interim Chief Executive Officer at NRMC. “Our effort to earn accreditation is an important measurement of our commitment to our patients, guests and communities we serve.”


Achieving accreditation is a process where healthcare organizations demonstrate compliance with national standards. Accreditation by ACHC reflects an organization’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that facilitate a higher level of performance and patient care.

“Our accreditation demonstrates our adherence to rigorous standards and our commitment to providing the highest quality healthcare to our community,” says Andrea Miller, Cardiopulmonary Supervisor at NRMC. “Through accurate sleep monitoring, we are able to help our patients determine the specific sleep disorder they may have, and take corrective measures to drastically improve quality of life.”


Quality sleep is an essential component to wellness. At the NRMC Sleep Center, an individual may have a sleep study to help determine if he or she is suffering from a sleep disorder. Sleep disorders can cause symptoms such as snoring, daytime sleepiness or fatigue, memory loss. Lack of sleep can also lead to serious health conditions such as depression, high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease.


During a sleep study, activities such as brain waves, eye and muscle movements, oxygen levels and heart rhythms are monitored with pain-free sensors. An experienced team of healthcare professionals including a registered sleep technician and physician analyze the data to determine an individual’s sleep quality.
