The Maryland Health Care Commission recently released the results of its 2012 Maryland Nursing Facility Short Stay Resident Survey, and Peninsula Regional Medical Center’s Transitional Care Unit earned high marks — 96 percent of those surveyed said they would recommend the Peninsula Regional Medical Center TCU, well above the statewide average of 81 percent.
The report showed that the Peninsula Regional Medical Center Transitional Care Unit scored above state average in many areas, including the staff’s respect and communication with patients and overall care by staff. Gina Nanna, Peninsula Regional Medical Center TCU Administrator, said, “The caring and dedication of the nursing and rehabilitation staff that works day-to-day with our patients are the reasons that our patients routinely enjoy an exceptional experience.”
The Maryland Health Care Commission’s family experience of care initiative is intended to measure the experience and satisfaction of family members and other designated responsible parties of residents in Maryland’s nursing homes. The MHCC, in collaboration with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems team, performed this short stay resident experience of care survey.
The PRMC Transitional Care Unit’s high marks on this survey are in line with other studies — in 2012, for the second consecutive year, U.S. News and World Report awarded the Transitional Care Unit at Peninsula Regional Medical Center a 5-Star overall rating for the quality of care provided to its residents in its recent 2012 “Best Nursing Homes” study. Peninsula Regional’s TCU was one of 51 skilled nursing facilities in Maryland and one of just four on the Eastern Shore to earn the 5-Star designation, indicating it is performing “far above average” when compared to the other 15,500 nursing homes in the United States. Peninsula Regional’s TCU was awarded 14 out of a possible 15 stars, an Eastern Shore best, in the three categories U.S. News and World Report used to determine a center’s overall rating; Health Inspection, Nurse Staffing and Quality Measures.
The Transitional Care Unit at Peninsula Regional Medical Center is a clinically staffed, skilled nursing facility that provides treatment for patients who no longer require inpatient care, but are in transition between returning home or moving into an extended care facility.
