What’s Special About Mapleton Care Center?
Private Ownership – Unlike the majority of nursing homes which are part of large corporate or regional chains, Mapleton is privately owned. It is a locally owned and operated nursing center. The Administrator is the on-site business owner and manager. Mapleton’s care and delivery decisions and considerations are locally based. Mapleton Care Center is truly a community-based center serving area residents and supporting their families.
Operational Pace – The majority of new admissions to most nursing centers come from hospitals as many of the rehabilitative and medical needs of older Americans are often best served in the long term care setting. Additionally, reimbursement for this care is significantly greater than a self-pay or Medicaid reimbursed individual. Most larger nursing home chains seek hospital based admissions, resulting in a high admission pace and a less strenuous pre-admission review process. This causes a much faster paced facility environment on a day-to-day basis, impacting all aspects of the facility, with many new lives coming and going each week and month.
Mapleton’s nursing and rehabilitative staff provides post-hospital rehabilitation and nursing care routinely. However the center’s primary admission sources are from individual homes, assisted living centers and other nursing homes. The frequency of admissions is much less than other centers, resulting in a more evenly paced and less hectic environment. Mapleton is considerate of the loved ones in residence and of the impact of a new admission on facility resources. This enhances quality of day-to-day life for individuals at the center, as well as for their families and the facility staff itself. This also supports an enhanced level of communication between the facility, residents and family members.
Regulatory Compliance & Quality Indicators – Mapleton Care Center has a strong record in its overall compliance with federal regulatory requirements. Mapleton has received high ratings based on its survey inspection record, its staffing and its reputation for resident care and family support.
