To prevent further deaths from occurring in patients with sleep apnea by evaluating hospitals on their assessment and treatment of sleep apnea patients and by educating clinicians on sleep apnea best practices.
Evaluate Hospitals on Their Assessment and Treatment of Sleep Apnea Patients based on their:
- Assessment of patients for sleep apnea before surgery.
- Treatment of patients diagnosed with sleep apnea, including providing positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy during their hospital stay and opioid-reducing therapies before, during and after surgery.
- Continuous electronic monitoring of patients receiving opioids after surgery.
Evaluation will be determined following hospital visits, interviews with the hospital’s executives and staff, and an assessment of the hospital’s practices and its executives’ commitment to a culture of patient safety.
