E.C. Care and Rehab Becomes First Nursing Home with Genetic Testing in Utah


By Emery County Care and Rehabilitation

Emery County Care and Rehabilitation Center is the first nursing home in the State of Utah to use genetic (DNA) testing for our residents.

Based on their personal and family history as well as their current medication regimen, it can be concluded that analysis of these genes may substantially improve the diagnosis, treatment plan and patient prognosis, which will help improve our care by keeping our residents at their highest physical, mental and psychosocial well being. The genes for which analysis has been requested are proven and known to play an important role in identifying responders and non-responders to medication, avoiding adverse events and optimizing drug dosage.
