Heritage of Elmwood is one of only seven senior care communities in Wisconsin to be selected to receive a patient lift from LeadingAge Wisconsin.
This device will lift and transfer patients from one spot to another, such as from a chair to their bed. Benefits of using a patient lift include reduced risk of injury to residents and caregivers. Heritage of Elmwood was selected out of 50 applicants.
Ellen Thompson, administrator of Heritage of Elmwood, who was in Madison to accept the award said, “This is great for our facility to practice the best possible care for our residents.”
Heritage of Elmwood Nursing Home in Elmwood, Wisconsin is a community-owned long-term care and short-term rehabilitation center.
