Skilled Nursing

Mt. Baker retains highly qualified registered and licensed practical nurses twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. An on-going program of continuing education assures staffs keep pace with rapidly advancing improvements in health care outcomes. Patient to staff ratios are higher than state and national averages so every person gets the care and attention they need to meet their recovery needs. This combination of nursing excellence gives our skilled facility it's four-star rating in addition to a return to hospital rate six times lower than the national average and among the lowest in Whatcom County.

We provide 24-hour skilled nursing services in short-term and long-term care. Our nursing team focus encompasses the residents' total emotional and physical well being while providing treatment and medication administration. Quality of resident care is assured through a rigorous Quality Assurance Program, where patient treatment and outcomes are tracked and reviewed.

Skilled nursing residents are medically dependent and require assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), skilled nursing and/or rehabilitation/therapy services. Staffing is heavier at skilled nursing communities than at Retirement, Assisted Living, and Residential Care communities.
