Atlantic Shores Retirement Community Develops Cutting-Edge Program for CCRC Patient Care

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As today's baby boomer generation retires, this demanding generation is pushing for higher levels of care. Continuing Care Retirement Communities across the nation are responding, with new policies and practices designed to advance a wide range of patient-care initiatives.

Atlantic Shores' Seaside skilled nursing center has been chosen for a national study on interactive intervention to reduce hospital re-admission.

Staff/Team approach to healthcare monitoring: Progressive CCRC's are involving overall staff into a comprehensive healthcare process. At Atlantic Shores, EMT calls are automatically followed-up with patient appointments. Nursing Assistants doing in-home visits notify the clinic with changes in patient status. Even management and staff, knowing residents personally, alert medical staff when someone looks or acts differently.
