The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services announced Monday that Lawrence Memorial Hospital's skilled nursing facility received a perfect score during an annual inspection June 22.

The department conducts unannounced inspections of the state's 340 nursing homes annually. Last year, only 4 percent of them received a perfect score or no deficiencies.

“This achievement places Lawrence Memorial Hospital SNF in the top tier of performance for hospitals in Kansas,” KDADS Secretary Shawn Sullivan said.

So how many skilled beds are there now at LMH? 4?

lol. I think maybe 6 at maximum. That's about 1/10th the size of other skilled facilities in Lawrence area (Presbyterian Manor, Pioneer Ridge, Brandon Woods, Eudora Medicalodge). And you better be looking for another place while there cause they will be booting you out as soon as your 100% coverage from Medicare is up (about 2 weeks). Yep, 6 skilled beds compared to 60. Tough challenge, eh.
