Does Your Skilled Nursing Facility Need a Physical Therapy Partner?
One of the fastest growing medical fields is related to skilled nursing facility care. As the Baby Boomers age, demand for these services is expected to increase dramatically. This is going to be a strain on facilities that are already challenged to provide space and quality therapies to patients. Fortunately, contract physical therapy partners may provide some relief to this dilemma. If you have never considered partnering with TMC, there are several important reasons to consider doing so.
There are some immediate benefits with bringing in a physical therapy partner, especially in this environment. Finding ways to stimulate residents in a skilled nursing facility is always a challenge. Occupational, physical and speech therapists can design activities to stimulate cognition, help residences build confidence and self-worth as well as account for many physical challenges faced by those in skilled nursing care. These activities can also be tailored to account for those in short term care or patients whose stay is long term.
Ongoing interaction with therapists who can help improve both mental and physical functioning in patients should be a priority for a skilled nursing facility. Unfortunately, that priority often runs headlong into one of the biggest problems for a skilled nursing facility â€“ job retention. With one of the highest employee turnover rates in the skilled care industry, keeping talented individuals can be a real challenge. Fortunately, working through TMC can ease those challenges.
TMC’s commitment to caring for the people who ultimately receive therapy drives everything from the mission statement to the hiring process. When you have aphysical therapist through TMC, you can rest assured that you are getting someone who is not only professionally talented, but who has a deep commitment to improving the lives of patients, high ethical standards and a heart that is bigger than you can imagine. Partnering with TMC ensures quality patient care, service excellence to all, and an environment of teamwork and trust to your clients in skilled nursing facilities.
