I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
My mom has been in National Healthcare Center in Sumter for 1½ weeks because she just got out of the hospital. It has been excellent. She had been in the hospital for two weeks with a broken leg, totally immobile, wouldn’t eat, couldn’t talk, and now she is eating, you can understand her when she talks, and is having physical therapy sessions. She is doing well. It is a community-type place. Right now, she is getting assessments every week. I have a planning session scheduled for next week with her plan care for what they are going for the next two weeks. Everybody has been really friendly, and every time I go there, the whole place recognizes me and fills me in on how she is doing. Their staffing-to-resident ratio is very good. Their skilled nursing facility is one of the higher rated facilities within 100 miles. They have two sunrooms, two internal courtyards, and an activity room, so there are plenty of amenities.

I visited this facility
This facility is always very clean and they work hard to make it feel like a home setting rather than nursing home. The nurses are all dressed in white to be easily identified and professional. There is plenty of staff available, and frequent activities for the residents. They also have therapy in house for PT, ST, and OT. This facility has new furniture, nicely decorated rooms, and a homely feeling. They have birdcages inside for residents to view. Each room has a window to view outside the facility and the grounds are fairly well kept. They encourage residents to get out and be active with the events and facility. Like I said, the staff are well dressed. They are all accredited professionals that have training and continued training. The nurses all dispense the medications on time and keep them safely in a locked cart with each resident having their own drawer. They also are very on top of wound care and skin breakdown prevention. Some rooms also have bed alarms to let staff know if a resident is off of their bed and potentially in danger Overall, this is one of the best places in this area for nursing homes. I feel that they do a good job with their residents and would recommend this facility.
