This accreditation demonstrates Florida Hospital Carrollwood’s commitment to providing the highest quality of patient care at our Wound Healing Institute
TAMPA, FL (PRWEB) October 21, 2016
The Wound Healing Institute at Florida Hospital Carrollwood has been awarded accreditation with distinction by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS), the leading authority in hyperbaric medicine. This accreditation is recognition that few hospitals and facilities have earned, and identifies the Institute as providing patients with advanced care.
The super oxygenation offered by hyperbaric treatments can help those with chronic non-healing wounds caused by diabetes, poor circulation, traumatic injury, radiation therapy and other causes.
In order to receive the UHMS accreditation, the Institute submitted to an inspection by expert evaluators who rated it on commitment to staffing and training, equipment installation, operation, maintenance, facility and patient safety and standards of care. More than 1,600 individual standards had to be successfully met to receive accreditation.
“This accreditation demonstrates Florida Hospital Carrollwood’s commitment to providing the highest quality of patient care at our Wound Healing Institute,” commented Dr. Ravindra Patel, Medical Director. “We are proud of our team members for achieving this significant milestone and of their commitment to their patients!"
The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) was formed in 1967. It is an international nonprofit association serving some 2,000 physicians, scientists, associates and nurses from more than 50 countries in the fields of hyperbaric and dive medicine. The UHMS is an important source of scientific and medical information pertaining to hyperbaric medicine involving hyperbaric oxygen therapy and diving through its bimonthly, peer-reviewed journal, Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine, symposia, workshops, books and other publications.
