When asked “how efficient is your skilled nursing respiratory unit ?” many SNF executives answer “we are just fine”.
How can you know your unit is “just fine” when you have never had anything to compare it too !!!
In house Respiratory expertise may be great but in most cases it is truly “in-house”.
For 25 years ALRS has been trusted by State Agencies and Skilled Nursing Chains to operate and maintain sophisticated vent and trach units under an all-inclusive agreement.
At ALRS we have recently decided to share our expertise with those facilities who have chosen to operate Respiratory specialty units.
We can provide your facility with an intensive on-site assessment of your existing unit including cost analysis, acuity index, staffing efficiency, equipment, disposable usage, compliance and many other parameters which will be “Benchmarked” and compared with our national standards.
