Frequently Asked Question

Does a safety director course designate someone as a Hyperbaric Safety Director?

We are often asked the question, "Does participation in a safety director course automatically designate me as a hyperbaric safety director?" There seems to be some midunderstanding around this issue.

What a lot of people fail to recognize is that only the employer (meaning, the hyperbaric facility) can designate an individual as the hyperbaric safety director.

So in short, the answer to the question, "does a safety director course automatically designate me as a hyperbaric safety director?" is no. Watch this short video to find out why.

Does attending a hyperbaric safety director course make me a safety director?

GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

  1. To provide a comprehensive, easily accessible, high quality lecture set addressing the knowledge and practice Intro-HBOT 12gaps of practitioners treating patients with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy with particular focus on identifying potential hyperbaric candidates in an office setting. This program will address the key fundamental elements and concepts which will assist the participant in practicing hyperbaric medicine safely and effectively on any conditions not needing to be treated as in-patient.
  2. Provide a brief history of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
  3. To fill gaps in knowledge on the physics of HBO and its effects at the cellular level: cardiac function, pulmonary function immune system (gene expression, mitochondria, stem cell release), collagen; effects on inflammation and infection; the nature of free radicals and how they relate to HBO both positive and negative.
  4. To provide knowledge of the changes at the cellular level with the use of HBOT.
  5. To address knowledge gaps in the science and practice of wound care as it relates to HBOT, including: contraindications and approved indications for the use of HBOT, such as diabetic foot ulcers, limb salvage compromised/failed flaps and grafts, radiation injury both ORN and soft tissue, arterial insufficiency and others.
  6. To discuss emerging research information on conditions currently under investigation for the use of HBOT and potential impacts on the future of the practice, such as HBO and CRPS/RSD, traumatic brain injury, stroke, neurological indications and others.

About the Course

This two-day workshop is specifically designed to support clinic administrators, medical directors, and hospital executives in marketing and administrating a hyperbaric and wound care center in a manner that supports positive patient outcomes and long-term successful business operations. 

Our agenda covers nuts & bolts to ensure effectiveness in providing patient care and receiving accurate reimbursement within the operations of managing a wound care department.

Included are specific clinical documentation of wound care related diagnoses with real-time cases, and the process and application of selecting the most accurate ICD-10 diagnosis codes.

There is an in-depth discussion on medical procedures with specificity on clinical documentation supporting HBO and other procedures. The importance of following regulations at all levels or risk external audit with possibly legal and costly ramifications under False Claims Act is discussed. 

Additionally, there is a detailed presentation on specific clinical documentation for wound care/HBO diagnoses to support the medical necessity of procedures to be billed.

Also covered is how Physician clinical documentation needs to support medical decision-making opportunities for improvement of accuracy of visit levels when appropriate.
