According to Medline Plus, "an ostomy is surgery to create an opening (stoma) from an area inside the body to the outside. It treats certain diseases of the digestive or urinary systems. It can be permanent, when an organ must be removed. It can be temporary, when the organ needs time to heal." Here at Fairfax Rehab and Nursing Center, we have an extensive and experienced wound ostomy care team, including a Wound Care Specialty Physician and Wound Ostomy Care Nurses certified in wound care!

Superheroes wear masks!!!! According to the CDC, “COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks, or raises their voice. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.” To reduce the spread of COVID-19, CDC recommends that people wear face coverings!!!!!! Any type of face covering is better than no face covering at all.
Fun Fact💡: According to Medicaid.gov, Medicaid currently covers 64.1 million people in the United States!

Are you looking for a rehab facility for stroke rehabilitation? According to Medicare Plan Finder, The goal of stroke rehabilitation is to recover your body's functions as much as possible and it starts as soon as you are stable. The process includes exercises to improve activities of daily living (ADL's) such as, talking, walking, and using the restroom. Recovery time varies on a case-by-case basis depending on the stroke severity. At Fairfax Rehab and Nursing Center, 21-25 days is the average ADL recovery time for our patients after being admitted!! This is done with the help of our amazing physical, occupational, and speech therapists!!
Medicare covers stroke rehabilitation!! According to Medicare.gov, Medicare has a 100- day rule for skilled nursing coverage that comes with rehabilitation progress. The first 20 days are covered completely, but the remaining days (21-100) require coinsurance of $176 / day.
Fairfax Rehab and Nursing Center is a LVAD certified facility!! According to Mayo Clinic, A ventricular assist device (VAD) – also known as a mechanical circulatory support device- is an implantable mechanical pump that helps pump blood from the lower chambers of your heart (the ventricles) to the rest of your body. Although a VAD can be placed in the left, right or both ventricles of your heart, it is most frequently used in the left ventricle. When placed in the left ventricle it is called a left ventricular assist device (LVAD).
What is skilled nursing facility (SNF) care?

Covid-19 testing and all the variables in the news today can be confusing. What’s the difference between Viral Test and Antibody Test?
1. Viral Testing helps identify if you are currently and actively infected with the virus. It’s most helpful for our facility, as early identification of the virus allows us to quickly isolate and quarantine positive cases, as well as provide early treatment and secondary preventative options. We rely heavily on biweekly viral testing of all residents and staff!
2. Antibody Testing, still very early in research, identifies if you were infected at some point with the virus. Antibody testing definitely helps identify groups and trends; however, recent research and data is questioning the longevity and life span of Covid-19 antibodies in the body. The study suggests that antibodies disappear after a period of time.
Here at Fairfax Rehab and Nursing Center, we perform COVID-19 Nasopharyngeal Viral Testing. Our trained and experienced staff collect our own specimens biweekly for all of our residents and staff!!
