Complex Respiratory Therapy Intervention for Nursing Homes

Complex Respiratory Therapy Intervention for Nursing Homes

Aeris Consulting is a nationwide medical consulting service firm specializing in complex respiratory therapy intervention for nursing homes. When your facility needs assistance in the form of skilled on-call therapists, additional educational programs, patient assessments or respiratory equipment, we are here to help. Our goal is to provide the services you need…to reduce your overhead costs, have the staff and equipment on hand to admit patients, and operate your facility efficiently and profitably.

The nursing home business, as you surely know, is wildly unpredictable, and care facilities must be prepared for not only the amount of patients they will be caring for, but also for downturns in patient check-ins and keeping payroll manageable. Aeris Consulting offers the best solutions, for staffing, patient care, and respiratory equipment, and we help ensure that you’re prepared for increases and decreases in patient numbers.

The Importance of Complex Respiratory Therapy in Nursing Homes

As our president Edwin Frost was recently quoted in a Skilled Nursing News article regarding the PDPM payment model (you can read the article here), the need for nursing facilities to take in sicker patients is growing due to fewer long term care hospitals, and so is the need for nursing homes to be able to care for such patients.

As nursing homes become more skilled in complex respiratory cases, they are able to achieve higher reimbursement costs, especially if they are able to reduce re-admissions. As your facility reduces re-admissions, your facility’s marketability and overall reputation improves, and with that comes increased profitability.

Aeris Consulting can ensure that your nursing home can provide complex respiratory care for your patients at any level of their needs, and that your staff can meet the demand. We provide your facility with licensed respiratory therapists for patient monitoring and assessments, along with fully staffed pulmonary programs. If you need temporary staff to handle increasing numbers of patients, we can provide on-call caregivers for 13- and 26-week assignments.

We also help manage respiratory equipment, with periodic inspections, repairs, and maintenance of oxygen concentrators and other equipment to keep your facility compliant with both federal and your state and regional regulations. Ensuring that you have the equipment and supplies on hand to meet the demand is just as important as having sufficient staffing.

We’ll help you offer the quality care your patients deserve, and we’ll help to grow your facility and success rate too.
