Services

At Laughlin Healthcare Center, our emphasis is on rehabilitation and restoration.

Services include (daily if needed):

  • Physical therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Occupational therapy

Also, nursing care is provided 24 hours a day by licensed nurses under the direction of an attending physician.

Our approach

Return-to-home focus

Our patients are referred to as residents. And preparation for a return-to-home environment is a major focus of care.

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

Team meetings with family members

A team meeting is held with each resident and their family to address goals and plans for care.

Activities

An activity director involves residents in enjoyable activities, crafts, special meals and other functions.

Dietary needs

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.

Criteria for admittance

Patients admitted to Laughlin Healthcare Center meet certain criteria, such as requiring:

  • IV antibiotics
  • Physical therapy
  • Diabetic teaching
  • Medication management
  • Pain control

Licensure

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