The most important part of any Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is the nursing staff. However, the average turnover rate for a Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in the United States is 100%! Such a high turnover rate indicates a lack of institutional memory and continuity of care. Alta Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center believes in employee education, development, and growth. We strive to support our employees so they can be the best at their jobs. We offer a variety of benefits to our employees, including educational opportunities and wellness programs. Alta strongly believes that in order to provide the care necessary to enrich the lives of our patients, we must provide enough nursing staff on the floor so they are not overwhelmed.
Exercise & Rehabilitation:
Exercise and rehabilitation is the cornerstone of health and recuperation at Alta Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. Before we elaborate, it’s important to discuss the difference between a healthy exercise program and the exercise that a Physical Therapist (PT), Occupational Therapist (OT), or Speech Therapist (ST) provides.
Curiously, the quality of food in most health care institutions has largely been neglected. Whether it be hospitals or Skilled Nursing Facilities, the resident diet is an afterthought. At Alta Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, a healthy diet is paramount in our clinical pathway. There are many divergent and contradictory diet plans available, but we recommend that all of our residents and staff read, “The End of Diabetes.” We encourage a diet of meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar. The key is no sugar.
