Respiratory Care Week

Posted on: 10/27/2017

ACH has a total of 12 respiratory therapists. According to Crystal Root, RN, Clinical Leader, CICU, & Amber Sitterly, RN, MSN, Director of Nursing, "...they work together as a team to make sure our hospital is staffed with the respiratory care professionals that we need on a daily basis. They do not just do treatments but they are also depended on for our ventilator patients, BiPAPs, CPAPs, high flow oxygen care and other non-invasive treatment methods. They also do pulmonary function testing, home oxygen evaluations, and many other behind the scenes things. They are part of our Rapid Response team and are depended on in a code situation.”

“These 12 folks are an integral part of the team at ACH. Please help us in thanking them for all they do and wish them a HAPPY RESPIRATORY CARE WEEK!”
