Choosing the Right Medical Partner for your Assisted Living Community
There are numerous advantages for assisted living communities and nursing facilities for partnering with a medical provider like SC House Calls. Nursing staff within communities see a primary benefit as the relationship and knowledge clinicians develop about their resident's medical issues and the consistency of care that familiarity fosters.
The key to a successful program is regular visits where symptoms are addressed early before developing into more severe conditions. Community administrators love these programs because they help to stabilize the census as regularly scheduled care improves outcomes. Improving the overall health of a community statistically reduces the likelihood of hospitalization or re-hospitalization.
In addition to better healthcare for current residents, there is also a powerful marketing component to these partnerships. People considering assisted living for a loved one will naturally be interested in any type of care option offered onsite. Having a clinician who can see they're loved one regularly could become the determining factor for choosing your community.
