It was an unexpected and pleasant surprise when St. Catherine’s Manor of Washington Court House was announced among 27 other Ohio facilities as an honoree of The Quality Initiative Recognition Program through the American Health Care Association.
The National Quality Initiative builds upon the existing work of the long-term and post-acute care profession by setting specific, measurable targets to further improve quality of care in America’s skilled nursing centers and assisted living communities. This recognition honors AHCA member skilled nursing care centers and assisted living communities that achieved all four of the following goals:
• Hospitalization: Safely reduce long-stay and short-stay hospitalizations by at least 10% since Q1 2017, or maintain a rate of 10% or less.
• Customer Satisfaction: Improve long-stay or short-stay satisfaction by 10% since Q1 2017, or achieve a rate of greater than 90%.
• Antipsychotics: Safely reduce the off-label use of antipsychotics by at least 10% since Q1 2017, or maintain a rate of 8% or less among long-stay residents and 1% or less among short-stay patients.
• Functional Outcomes: Improve short-stay functional improvement or long-stay worsening mobility by 15% – or maintain greater than 75% on short-stay functional improvement or maintain less than 12% on long-stay worsening mobility.
