SAFETY / JCAHO

Attention: Patients, caregivers, physicians and fellow colleagues:

Hyperbaric Services of the Palm Beaches is committed to enforcing safety as our primary concern. Safety for our patients in the administration of hyperbaric therapy has always been our primary concern. In fact, Hyperbaric Services of the Palm Beaches is the ONLY free standing facility in South Florida to receive accreditation from JCAHO.

JCAHO is the Joint Commission Accredited Health Organization, an independent, not-for-profit organization which is the nation’s preeminent standards, setting and accrediting body in healthcare.

We have chosen to participate in this voluntary accreditation process to measure our facility against national standards reflecting what healthcare professionals agree is most important in providing the highest quality and safest hyperbaric oxygen therapy available.

Opened in early 2008, Hyperbaric Services of the Palm Beaches is a new construction, state-of-the-art free standing facility featuring four new Seachrist monoplace chambers. Seachrist Industries, Inc. has been the leading manufacturer of hyperbaric oxygen chambers for over thirty years and in that time, earned the reputation as the worldwide leader in quality and safety. Our chambers are installed and maintained by the manufacturer in accordance with the highest standards.

Here at Hyperbaric Services of the Palm Beaches, hyperbaric therapy is administered by trained technicians and supervised by an on-site hyperbaric trained physician. Stringent protocols are posted and meticulously followed prior to each treatment to eliminate any risk to the safety of the patient while inside the chamber. These pre-cautions include but are not limited to: wearing 100% cotton clothing as well as the obvious exclusion of anything brought into the chamber such as reading material, cell phone, i-pods, medical devices, etc.

If you have any questions regarding our facility or the safety precautions we employ, please feel free to contact me or any member of our team.
