There is a stigma regarding Skilled Nursing Therapy facilities in New Jersey that is hard to shake.
Seniors fear that once they enter a facility, they can never leave. They think the therapists will keep finding reasons why they aren’t fit enough to discharge. That may have been true in the past, but there are now rules and regulations in place to prevent this kind of abuse. Today, the average stay in a facility is only 7 to 14 days.
Skilled Nursing Therapy facilities are the best places for seniors to recover from hip and knee fractures, strokes, and cabbages (short for cardiac surgery of the heart)—among other conditions and surgical procedures. The goal is to get seniors moving better, teaching them safety habits and best practices, so they can get back home at the soonest.
These facilities are surveyed annually. They are assessed according to their staffing ratios, administration procedures, and, of course, facility safety and security measures. They must follow general construction guidelines to ensure the safety and wellness of their patients, who recently underwent procedures or are recovering from health scares.
Before the therapy is done and seniors return home, their homes must be renovated, so they are safer for them to live in. That’s where companies like ours come in. At Mobility Construction we do wheelchair ramp installation in Freehold, New Jersey—plus so much more!
