Nursing and rehabilitation centers across the country have adapted to meet the diverse needs of today’s patients and residents. When people leave the hospital, they often need continued care in order to recover completely. That is where we come in, bridging the gap between hospital and home.
Increasingly, our patients are more medically and clinically complex with growing nursing and therapy needs. Despite caring for sicker patients, Kindred Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers have continued to improve quality outcomes by responding with more nursing and therapy staff to meet patient needs.
Watch the video below to learn how Kindred Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers are reducing their rates of rehospitalization.
Kindred Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers have been nationally recognized with more than 92% earning a National Quality Award from the American Health Care Association/ National Center for Assisted Living, based on the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award Program.
As patients have become more medically and clinically complex, we have focused on services to meet their changing needs. Our Transitional Care and Rehabilitation Centers are shaping the future of our nursing and rehabilitation centers. These centers focus on patients who require short-term rehabilitative care. Generally they are recuperating from joint surgery or other procedures and need an intensive, supervised rehabilitation regimen. Rehabilitation services include physical, occupational and speech-language therapies. These services are dedicated to restoring patients and residents to 75 – 100% of their prior level of function.
To meet the needs of the communities we serve, our centers have developed additional expertise in the clinical areas of cardiac, pulmonary, orthopedic, stroke recovery and wound care. Through 2011, nearly 200 programs have been implemented in centers nationwide. Through these programs, patients benefit from specialty physician involvement, an interdisciplinary team with advanced training for the conditions they treat and specific protocols and equipment to best meet their needs. While all Kindred centers care for a variety of conditions, these programs offer additional and advanced capabilities to care for patients with more complex therapy needs.
We demonstrate our dedication to quality care and performance improvement through the outcomes data that we measure and report. Kindred is leading the industry in outcomes tracking, providing robust reports which include re-hospitalization rates, length of stay, discharge disposition, functional outcome measures and customer satisfaction. We utilize this data to improve our quality and build post-acute care relationships that help reduce avoidable re-hospitalizations, establish appropriate patient goals and plans of care for successful return to home.
While we are advancing our rehabilitative services, Kindred understands a great percentage of our residents have some sort of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. Many of our nursing and rehabilitation centers specialize in the unique challenges facing these residents and offer a supportive and safe environment for the resident, and peace of mind for their families.
