Skilled Nursing /  Long-Term Acute Care Hospital  (LTACH)

Skilled nursing is an inpatient rehabilitation/medical facility with trained medical professionals that provide 24/7 health care and assistance with activities of daily living (ADL’s). Long-term acute care hospitals (LTACH’s) provide care for patients with complex medical conditions that require longer stays.

Living with Dignity

Awareness of how the built environment impacts human health is at an all-time high. As we age, we face several formidable challenges directly related to health. Environments can be a tool with which to make people healthier, a fact that forward-thinking healthcare systems and providers are recognizing. The context for these trends is the aging population.

Five Meta Trends Impacting a Healthier Human Experience:

  1. Design for resilience in crisis response, think about the environmental impact
  2. As lifespan increases, spaces must empower individuals
  3. Create positive change for the workforce, maximize the impact of space
  4. Repurpose, and restore spaces to drive return on investment

Right Product. Right Space.

Skilled nursing facilities create a relationship between acute and post-acute care. Hospitals and investors have acquired nursing facilities as a critical link in the continuum of care. Caregiver retention is at a pivot point. Successful corporations and investors will foster a deeper sense of caring for the caregiver. Facility design must adapt to drive retention strategies. Flooring selection, specification, and installation can positively impact resident outcomes, caregiver retention, safety, health, and well-being.
