Sleep Review reports that:
Hotels/Motels Not Appropriate for Sleep Studies, CMS Says
New regulatory standards for independent diagnostic testing facilities released by CMS last month are scheduled to take effect January 1, 2008.
Among the standards is one that rules out the use of hotels and motels for performing sleep studies.
For more info, see here.
I believe that this ruling only applies to IDTF's. As an AASM accreditation site visitor, I have inspected a university-owned sleep lab that was based in a hotel. It was a nice operation. I don't agree with this CMS decision, though it will affect only a few sleep labs.
