Hamden Rehabilitation and Health Care Center was recently awarded the Providigm Embracing Quality Award for 2013. With only 285 facilities receiving awards in 2013, this puts Hamden Rehabilitation and Health Care Center in an elite group of skilled nursing facilities.
“The Providigm Embracing Quality Award program recognizes the highest performers in three categories,” states Barbara Baylis, Accreditation Program Director at Providigm. “Skilled nursing facilities are recognized for outstanding survey performance, preventing readmissions to hospitals, and for superior levels of customer satisfaction. The 2013 Providigm Embracing Quality Award winners are truly the cream of the crop nursing centers.”
Skilled nursing facilities were only eligible to win a 2013 Embracing Quality Award if they achieved standards for Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) as required by Providigm’s National Accreditation for QAPI. These standards ensure that facilities are assessing quality against the full federal regulation at an ongoing rate, encompassing a substantial proportion of their residents, and correcting identified issues.
Linda Odaynik, Administrator at Hamden Rehabilitation and Health Care Center says “It is an honor to win the Embracing Quality Award. “This prestigious recognition is a tribute to the hard work of our employees and their dedication to providing excellent care to our residents.”
Hamden Rehabilitation Center is a 153 bed skilled nursing facility providing 24-hour nursing care. Our team of professionals includes licensed nurses, rehabilitation therapists, and social workers, registered dieticians and recreation therapists.
