Schneider Hospital Wins Respiratory Care Award

April 11, 2006 — For the third consecutive year, Roy L. Schneider Hospital has won national recognition for its respiratory care.
Only 10 percent of the nation's 5,000 hospitals have been named a Quality Care Respiratory institution. The recognition is given by the American Association of Respiratory Care, which helps patients and families make informed decisions about the quality of hospitals' respiratory care services.
Earning the recognition meant the hospital had to meet a strict set of criteria governing respiratory care.
"Our team of dedicated individuals is skilled at identifying problems and administering treatment that leads to quick relief," said Jeannine Mydlenski, director of respiratory care at Schneider Regional Medical Center.
Respiratory therapists are specially trained healthcare professionals who work under physician's orders to provide a wide range of breathing treatments and other services to people with asthma, chronic pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, lung cancer, AIDS, and other lung or lung-related conditions. They also care for premature infants and are key members of lifesaving response teams charged with handling medical emergencies.
