To Rebecca Roman, MSPT, Administrator at Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital: Dear Ms. Roman, I am going home tomorrow and well on my way to recovery thanks to you and your staff at Whittier. This is my fifth time at Whittier over the past ten years for three different reasons. In every case the expert care and consideration shown by you and your staff have been the basis for my complete recovery. Dr. Jac and Dr. Turchetta gave me excellent care and understood all my needs. Your nurses were excellent and understanding, especially Lindsey. “Benny” gave me excellent care, as always. She is an angel. Seemingly tough, but oh so gentle. Your nursing staff is excellent and was always there when I needed them. Medical and therapy staff such as, Nii, Moses, Joe, Michelle, Heather, Christa, Joslyn et al were always willing to help. Especially Moses. Larry was extremely helpful with my respiratory needs. Disinfecting & cleaning were constant and established the feeling that the constant protection would assure a quick and uncomplicated recovery. My special thanks to your physical therapists. They all had the same “you can do it so try attitude.” You should be proud of your great team. I am genuinely glad that you are here in case I need all of you in the future. Davis R. B.

Whittier Bradford Transitional Care Unit

Whittier Bradford Transitional Care Unit is Deficiency Free in 2017 Massachusetts State Survey!


The annual State survey of Whittier Transitional Care Unit in Bradford, MA has been completed and after two days of inspection the survey team deemed the facility deficiency free. All standards required by the State of Massachusetts were met and no deficient practices were found. During this survey, they looked at areas of nursing, rehab, activities, human resources, social work and more, as well as meeting with resident’s and families to be sure that all requirements and standards were in compliance.
 
Zachary Wilkins, Whittier Bradford Transitional Care Unit Administrator said, “The results of this survey are a true representation of the high level of care provided by the TCU staff day in and day out.  We are very excited about this accomplishment and will continue to provide the best experience possible for all of the residents and families we serve at the TCU.  We credit the staff that dedicates all their time and effort to ensure every resident becomes a part of the Whittier family.
 
The survey process is completed by the Department of Public Health on an annual basis. The federal and state government share the responsibility for ensuring that all facilities under nursing home regulations like nursing homes and transitional care units are in compliance with all aspects of care. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in the U.S. Department of Human Services oversee the inspection program for nursing homes that participate in the federal Medicare and Medicaid programs.
 
The state surveyors commended the Transitional Care Unit on the high level of care, how beautiful the unit is and our personal favorite about how family-like the unit is.
