Elizabeth Scott earns national honor

Written by Healthy Living News. Posted in Our Community

The Elizabeth Scott Community has been named by U.S. News & World Report as a 2020-21 Best Nursing Homes Short-Term Rehabilitation facility. It is among only 21% of U.S. skilled nursing facilities to earn the distinction.

The facility earned the honor by achieving a rating of “High Performing,” the highest possible rating, for Short-Term Rehabilitation. U.S. News gives the designation of Best Nursing Homes only to those facilities that satisfy its assessment of the appropriate use of key services and consistent performance in quality measures.

“We are very pleased and satisfied to be selected for this honor,” says Matt Bucher,
Director of Marketing for
the Elizabeth Scott
Community. “Given the
added burden and stress of having to deal with COVID-19 this year, it’s a true testament to our staff that they have remained steadfast in their care of our residents.”

Now in its 11th year, the U.S. News Best Nursing Homes ratings and profiles offer comprehensive information about care, safety, health inspections, staffing, and more for nearly all of the nation’s 15,000-plus nursing homes. The Best Nursing Homes ratings reflect U.S. News’ exclusive analysis of publicly available data using a methodology defined by U.S. News that evaluates factors it has determined most greatly impact patient and resident care, safety, and outcomes.

This year, to accompany the new ratings, nursing home profile pages were updated to include a patient safety summary that reflects COVID-19 data alongside other measurements of safety and related advice on choosing a home or facility amidst the pandemic.

Elizabeth Scott’s Skilled Rehabilitation Center was built as an addition to its other levels of care. It opened in September 2015, offering short-term rehabilitation. Typical patients are those who have been released from the hospital and require several weeks of physical, occupational, or speech therapy. Staff members use electronic charting to maintain medical records.

The 1,600-square-foot facility offers state-of-the-art equipment and rehabilitation up to seven days a week. There are 14 generously sized private luxury suites, each with a private bathroom and shower, flat-screen television, and Wi-Fi. A dining room, that is separate from the rest of the Elizabeth Scott campus, overlooks a rural setting.

The Elizabeth Scott Community, located at 2720 Albon Road in Maumee, is a family owned and operated facility that offers Independent Living, Enhanced Living, Skilled Nursing, and Skilled Rehabilitation on a single campus.
