Salter HealthCare, one of Massachusetts’s oldest and leading rehabilitation and skilled nursing providers, today announced that their Winchester Rehabilitation & Nursing Center has received a coveted perfect survey from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, indicating perfect compliance with the Commonwealth’s stringent standards for skilled nursing care. Very few facilities in the Commonwealth achieve this designation, placing them on an elite list of those providing the highest level of care.
“Our industry is highly regulated so to be able to receive a perfect survey is not only difficult, but a huge honor,” said Bob Driscoll, Chief Operating Officer for Salter HealthCare. “This isn’t just a win for us as a company, but it’s a win for our staff who work incredibly hard every day to ensure our residents receive the best possible care. A big thank you to our amazing team who made this possible!”
Throughout its nearly 40-year history, Winchester Rehabilitation & Nursing Center has received a host of accolades including, most recently, a prestigious 5-Star quality rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and, in 2014, was named a Best Nursing Home by U.S. News & World Report.
Every year, the Massachusetts Department of Health evaluates all nursing homes in the Commonwealth on more than 130 regulatory and quality standards, including administration, adequacy of staffing, quality of care, safety, resident rights, kitchen/food services, cleanliness and many more. The survey is designed to ensure facilities meet state regulations as well as to provide an assessment tool for prospective patients and families needing to make informed decisions about which skilled nursing facility in which to entrust their care.
Winchester Rehabilitation is a newly renovated, 120-bed skilled nursing facility providing a host of short and long-term care services for those recovering from surgery or hospitalization or dealing with acute illnesses or injury. Just some of their many services include state-of-the-art Rehabilitation Suites, private rooms and a host of amenities including flat screen TV’s and WIFI. Licensed physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapists provide a range of daily services and diverse recreation programs, including music, pet and massage therapy programs designed to return patients to a more independent lifestyle.
