Laughlin Healthcare Center, a Laughlin Memorial Hospital affiliate, operates a ninety-bed skilled nursing facility for patients who require nursing care or therapies beyond hospitalization.

At Laughlin Healthcare Center, our emphasis is on rehabilitation and restoration. Services include daily physical, speech and occupational therapies (if needed). Also, nursing care is provided 24 hours a day by licensed nurses under the direction of an attending physician.

Laughlin Healthcare Center is licensed by the state of Tennessee, and is inspected annually by the Tennessee Department of Health.

Patients admitted to Laughlin Healthcare Center meet certain criteria, such as requiring IV antibiotics, physical therapy, diabetic teaching, medication management and pain control. Patients who are admitted to Laughlin Healthcare Center are referred to as residents, and a preparation for return-to-home environment is a major focus of care. A team meeting is held with each resident and their family to address goals and plans for care.

An activity director involves residents in enjoyable activities, crafts, special meals and other functions. Under the oversight of a certified dietary manager and registered dietician, each resident’s nutritional needs are evaluated with the focus on nutritionally satisfying meals.

The goal of Laughlin Healthcare Center is to get residents back to their pre-hospitalization level of activity, and self-care is encouraged.
