5 Demands of the SFCC Respiratory Care Program and the Profession: Physical Requirements: Respiratory Care is a physically demanding profession. Students are required to work twelve hour shifts covering several areas throughout the hospital and may be on their feet for extended periods of time. As a graduate you will most likely be required to work shifts, weekends, and holidays. Respiratory Care students also help lift patients and transport patients to various sites in the hospital while maintaining ventilation with manual equipment. Ventilators must be cleaned and moved from one area of the hospital to other areas on a regular basis. Specialty gas cylinders are also transported from one area of the hospital to another. Metering devices must be attached to these cylinders requiring the use of wrenches and some degree of physical strength. A great deal of manual dexterity is required to manipulate artificial airway equipment, needles for arterial puncture and application of certain types of oxygen equipment. Students must be able to hear equipment alarms from a distance and distinguish subtle changes in air entry and breath sounds in the lungs and airways. Patients are often observed from a distance and heart monitors must be accurately read from at least the end of the patient s bed, approximately 6 feet away. The student may be exposed to cleaning materials as well as biological (i.e. blood, mucous), infectious/communicable diseases, and chemically hazardous materials in the clinical setting. Emergency situations frequently occur that require immediate response and action by the student. Considerable reaching, stooping, bending, kneeling and crouching are also required. Students must have the ability to judge distance and space relationships, see peripherally, distinguish and identify different colors. Psychological Requirements: Must be emotionally stable in order to provide safe care to patients. Students on medication must be considered to be on a stabilized dose in order to provide patient care. Application Requirements: Please see the Application Instructions and the Program Advisement Forms available on the Respiratory Care Program Web Page. Note: Successful program applicants are required to demonstrate current math competency by qualifying for MATH 121 or higher on the College Board Math ACCPLACER available free of charge at the Testing Center. The Math department runs a free math review through the tutoring center prior to most semesters. 5

6 Note: Travel to clinical sites will be required. Students must qualify for and attend all clinical sites. At this time it is possible to graduate under the 2011/2012 SFCC catalog, the 2012/2013 catalog or the 2015/2016 catalog. The Graduation requirements are different for each catalog. Whether you qualify for the earlier catalog will depend on when you declared your major. Please see an advisor to clarify which degree plan and catalog you are eligible for and to address any questions you may have. Follow the links from the webpage for the current degree plan. Please see the program director for prior catalog degree plans. Respiratory Care Program Completion Requirements: The Respiratory Care Program requires that students fulfill several complementary requirements (both course and clinical) that, together, prepare students for the NBRC credentialing exams and careers as respiratory therapists. These requirements include: A minimum grade of C+ must be maintained in all respiratory courses to progress from one course to the next and to graduate. Passing grades are required in all midterm and final exams to progress from one course to the next. A cumulative GPA of 2.33 must be maintained to remain in the respiratory care program. Assigned competencies must be completed successfully each semester. Note: Failure to progress in any respiratory core course will result in dismissal from the program. Students may reapply to the beginning of the next cohort. No credit will be given for core respiratory courses taken previously at SFCC or at another program. Additional Requirements: 1. Participation in Respiratory Care Week 2. AARC Membership - free 3. Physician Interaction documented in the clinical data management system each semester 4.

10 There will be many new job titles in the future as Health Care evolves. Respiratory Therapists will become physician extenders, patient educators, case managers and more. The skills (ability to work independently, to self-supervise, to think critically, to be a vital member of the healthcare team) developed by a professional and competent respiratory care practioner are marketable well beyond the respiratory care profession. Many Graduates go on to attain Bachelor degrees in Respiratory Care pursue Masters and/or Doctorate degrees in other medical fields. American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) position statements. Definition of Respiratory Care Respiratory Care is the health care discipline that specializes in the promotion of optimum cardiopulmonary function and health. Respiratory Therapists employ scientific principles to identify, treat and prevent acute or chronic dysfunction of the cardiopulmonary system. Knowledge and understanding of the scientific principles underlying cardiopulmonary physiology and pathophysiology, as well as biomedical engineering and technology, enable respiratory therapists to provide patient care services effectively. As a health care profession, Respiratory Care is practiced under medical direction across the health care continuum. Critical thinking, patient/environment assessment skills, and evidencebased clinical practice guidelines enable respiratory therapists to develop and implement effective care plans, patient-driven protocols, disease-based clinical pathways, and disease management programs. A variety of venues serves as the practice site for this health care profession including, but not limited to: Acute care hospitals Sleep disorder centers and diagnostic laboratories Long term acute care facilities Rehabilitation, research and skilled nursing facilities Patients homes Patient transport systems Physician offices and clinics Convalescent and retirement centers Educational institutions Medical equipment companies and suppliers Wellness centers Respiratory Care Scope of Practice 10

11 Respiratory Therapists are health care professionals whose responsibilities include patient assessment, disease management, diagnostic evaluation, management, education, rehabilitation and care of patients with deficiencies and abnormalities of the cardiopulmonary system. The scope of practice includes the application of technology and the use of protocols across all care sites including, but not limited to, the hospital, clinic, physician s office, rehabilitation facility, skilled nursing facility and the patient s home. These responsibilities are supported by education, research and administration. Diagnostic activities include but are not limited to: 1. Obtaining and analyzing physiological specimens 2. Interpreting physiological data 3. Performing tests and studies of the cardiopulmonary system 4. Performing neurophysiological studies 5. Performing sleep disorder studies Therapy includes but is not limited to: 1. The application and monitoring of medical gases and environmental control systems 2. Mechanical ventilator management 3. Insertion and care of artificial airways 4. Bronchopulmonary hygiene 5. Administration of Pharmacological agents 6. Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation 7. Hemodynamic cardiovascular support 8. Sleep support The focus of patient and family education activities is to promote knowledge and understanding of the disease process, medical therapy and self-help. Public education activities focus on the promotion of cardiopulmonary wellness. Respiratory Therapist Education It is the position of the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) that in order to prepare entry level respiratory therapists for clinical practice and to prepare clinical leaders for services requiring complex, cognitive abilities and complex patient management skills: The minimum education required to practice respiratory care is completion of an associate degree in respiratory care. Programs for the education of respiratory therapists, managers, researchers, faculty, and professional leaders should be accredited by a body recognized by government, and through a rigorous and ongoing process which assures the quality of their programming. 11

12 Respiratory therapists completing such education, advanced training, and/or experience should be eligible for credentialing to reflect their didactic preparation and clinical skills required for practice in the respective area of specialization. Credentialing should be encouraged in related areas of specialization to include Neonatal/Pediatric Care, Adult Critical Care, Sleep Disorders, Pulmonary Function Testing and others which may be added as the field evolves. The AARC also encourages the development of accredited, advanced degree programs in Respiratory Care at the bachelor's, masters and doctoral levels; and encourages therapists to pursue such higher education as a means of expanding career opportunities and advancing the Respiratory Care profession. AARC Statement of Ethics and Professional Conduct In the conduct of professional activities the Respiratory Therapist shall be bound by the following ethical and professional principles. Respiratory Therapists shall: Demonstrate behavior that reflects integrity, supports objectivity, and fosters trust in the profession and its professionals. Promote and practice evidence-based medicine. Seek continuing education opportunities to improve and maintain their professional competence and document their participation accurately. Perform only those procedures or functions in which they are individually competent and which are within their scope of accepted and responsible practice. Respect and protect the legal and personal rights of patients, including the right to privacy, informed consent, and refusal of treatment. Divulge no protected information regarding any patient or family unless disclosure is required for the responsible performance of duty as authorized by the patient and/or family, or required by law. Provide care without discrimination on any basis, with respect for the rights and dignity of all individuals. Promote disease prevention and wellness. Refuse to participate in illegal or unethical acts. Refuse to conceal, and will report, the illegal, unethical, fraudulent, or incompetent acts of others. Follow sound scientific procedures and ethical principles in research. Comply with state or federal laws which govern and relate to their practice. Avoid any form of conduct that is fraudulent or creates a conflict of interest, and shall follow the principles of ethical business behavior. Promote health care delivery through improvement of the access, efficacy, and cost of patient care. Encourage and promote appropriate stewardship of resources. Work to achieve and maintain respectful, functional, and beneficial relationships with all health professionals. 12

13 Licensure of Respiratory Care Personnel The American Association for Respiratory Care staunchly supports the non-restrictive licensing of respiratory therapists at all levels within the defined scope of practice as a means of protecting the public's health, safety, and welfare by mandating a minimal level of competency in respiratory care modalities. Respiratory Care licensure is not intended to limit, preclude or otherwise interfere with the practice of other persons who are formally trained and licensed and who have documented equivalent competency. Cultural Diversity The AARC professional community embraces diversity and multi-culturalism in all of its forms and promotes respect and cultural competence in every facet of its mission. The AARC is enriched by the unique differences found among its diverse members, their patients/clients, and other stakeholders. The AARC values and incorporates equal opportunity, and promotes the use of personal and cultural backgrounds to enhance our profession. The AARC accomplishes this by: Demonstrating sensitivity to all forms of diversity and multiculturalism including, but not limited to: age, gender and gender identity, race, color and ethnicity, nationality and national origin, ancestry, religious affiliation and creed, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, political affiliation, physical and mental abilities, veteran and active armed service status, job responsibilities and experience, education and training. Acknowledging the varied beliefs, attitudes, behaviors and customs of the people that constitute its communities of interest, thereby creating a diverse and multicultural professional environment. Promoting an appreciation for communication between, and understanding among, people with different beliefs and backgrounds. Accommodating the needs of the physically disabled at events and activities. Using multicultural content and gender-neutral references in documents and publications. Promoting diversity education and cultural competence in its professional education programs. Recruiting candidates from under-represented groups for leadership and mentoring programs. Competency Requirements for the Provision of Respiratory Therapy Services The complexities of respiratory therapy are such that the public is at risk of injury, and health care institutions are at risk of liability when respiratory therapy is provided by inadequately educated and unqualified health care providers rather than by practitioners appropriately educated in the specialty of Respiratory Therapy. All health care practitioners providing respiratory therapy services to patients, regardless of the care setting and patient demographics, shall successfully complete formal training and demonstrate initial 13

14 competence prior to assuming those duties. This formal training and demonstration of competence shall be required of any health care provider regardless of credential, degree, or license. Formal training is defined as a supervised, deliberate, and systematic educational activity in the affective, psychomotor and cognitive domains. It is intended to develop new proficiencies with an application in mind, and is presented with attention to needs, objectives, activities and a defined method of evaluation. The training shall be approved by a local, regional or national accrediting entity. In the allied health fields, this training includes supervised pre-clinical (didactic and laboratory) and clinical activities, as well as documentation of competence through tests determined to be valid and reliable. The qualifications of the faculty providing this training shall be documented and also meet accreditation standards. Health Promotion and Disease Prevention The AARC acknowledges that professional respiratory therapists (RTs) in both the civilian and uniformed/military services are integral members of the health care team around the world. They serve in acute care hospitals, long term acute care hospitals (LTACH), long-term facilities, home care settings, pulmonary function laboratories, pulmonology practices, rehabilitation programs, critical care transport, managed care organizations and a diversity of other environments where respiratory care is practiced. The AARC recognizes that the highest quality professional education and training of the respiratory therapist is the best method of instilling the ability to improve the patient's quality and longevity of life through their practices. Such knowledge and skills must be incorporated into formal education and training of RTs in Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC) accredited programs, and must emphasize expanding roles for RTs in Disease Management, Health Coaching, Case Management, Clinical Consulting, Patient Education, COPD Education and Asthma Education in particular. Advanced formal education, to the baccalaureate level and beyond, permits RTs to participate at a higher and more independent level in health promotion and disease prevention. The AARC recognizes the RT s responsibility to take a leadership role in pulmonary disease teaching, smoking cessation programs, second-hand smoke awareness, pulmonary screening for the public, air pollution awareness, allergy and sulfite warnings. RTs must also demonstrate initiative in research in those and other areas where efforts could promote improved health and disease prevention. Furthermore, the RT is in a unique position to provide leadership in determining health promotion and disease prevention activities for students, faculty, practitioners, patients, and the general public, in both civilian and uniformed service environments. HIPAA The HIPAA Privacy Rule provides federal protections for personal health information held by covered entities and gives patients an array of rights with respect to that information. At the same time, the Privacy Rule is balanced so that it permits the disclosure of personal health information needed for patient care and other important purposes. 14

15 The Security Rule specifies a series of administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for covered entities to use to assure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information. Covered entities include: Health Plans, including health insurance companies, HMOs, company health plans, and certain government programs that pay for health care, such as Medicare and Medicaid. Most Health Care Providers those that conduct certain business electronically, such as electronically billing your health insurance including most doctors, clinics, hospitals, psychologists, chiropractors, nursing homes, pharmacies, and dentists. Health Care Clearinghouses entities that process nonstandard health information they receive from another entity into a standard (i.e., standard electronic format or data content), or vice versa. What Information Is Protected Information your doctors, nurses, and other health care providers put in your medical record Conversations your doctor has about your care or treatment with nurses and others Information about you in your health insurer s computer system Billing information about you at your clinic Most other health information about you held by those who must follow these laws How Is This Information Protected Covered entities must put in place safeguards to protect your health information. Covered entities must reasonably limit uses and disclosures to the minimum necessary to accomplish their intended purpose. Covered entities must have contracts in place with their contractors and others ensuring that they use and disclose your health information properly and safeguard it appropriately. Covered entities must have procedures in place to limit who can view and access your health information as well as implement training programs for employees about how to protect your health information. Note: Santa Fe Community College and the SFCC Respiratory Care program are aligned with the above AARC position statements. 15
