Our patients are like family, and we treat them accordingly
Grand Terrace, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2015
Today, Grand Terrace Health Care Center revealed its Five-Star Medicare rating in a new video, “Grand Terrace Health Care Center.” Each year, Medicare ranks care centers around the country in an effort to keep facilities accountable and help patients find the best facility for their needs. Grand Terrace prides itself on quality in each of Medicare’s evaluation categories, including health inspections, staffing, and quality measures.
“Our patients are like family, and we treat them accordingly,” says Annamarie Briones, Director of Nursing at Grand Terrace. “In an effort to make them feel as at home as possible at our care center, we ensure our facility is equipped with the best employees, cleanest rooms, and most qualified medical assistance. Medicare’s Five-Star rating is a confirmation that we are doing our job.”
The video shows a series of patients affirming the care center’s high standards for care and comfort. Donald, a short-term rehab patient, says, “They address you by your name. They remember you. The director remembers you. There’s a natural tendency to care for people, [to] treat them with respect [and] so you’re not just a patient. They ask what you like or what you don’t like.” Grand Terrace’s services include nursing services, rehabilitation (such as physical therapy), social services, and long-term and end-of-life-care. As a result, many doctors refer their patients to the care center.
The video also highlights the individual attention each patient receives at Grand Terrace. Donna, a short-term rehab patient says, “Everything is geared to the individual patient. Every single person in here has a different program.”
Medicare’s rating system is designed for families searching for care center options, as centers vary by not only services, but also quality of care and facility. When choosing a location, potential patients often consider dietary options, cleanliness, medical treatment, staff friendliness, and social activity. Medicare’s rating system puts families at ease by telling them exactly what level of care they can expect at each facility.
