For the second year running, the American Association for Respiratory Care has awarded Allied Services Skilled Nursing and Rehab Center their “Quality Respiratory Care Recognition.” This annual designation is awarded to skilled nursing facilities meeting the highest standards of respiratory care. Providers of respiratory therapy services earn the designation based on adherence to a range of standards including quality of care, safety, clinical expertise, provision of round-the-clock care and implementation of best practices.
Allied Services Skilled Nursing and Rehab Center in Scranton is the only skilled nursing center in the region that offers a dedicated respiratory unit. The 21-bed unit, led by a board certified Pulmonologist, utilizes a multi-disciplinary approach to providing respiratory care to residents and patients. The unit’s licensed respiratory therapists provide extensive pulmonary care for the most medically complex patients, both on a post-acute and chronic long-term level.
In the past year, the facility upgraded its entire fleet of ventilators, introducing state of the art devices that offer the latest in safety and therapeutic functions.
“Our staff is continually working to provide the highest level of care and outcomes for our patients. We’re proud to be recognized as the region’s leading provider of respiratory care for skilled nursing patients” commented Christopher Richardson, Acting Director of Respiratory Therapy, Allied Services Skilled Nursing & Rehab Center.
