Hubbard Hill Receives National Accreditation for Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) Efforts.
Elkhart, Indiana – Hubbard Hill Retirement Community was recently awarded the Providigm Embracing Quality Award for 2015 for exceptional achievement in Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement. With only 302 nursing centers in the US and Ontario receiving awards in 2015, this puts Hubbard Hill in a select group of high performing skilled nursing facilities.
As a high performer, a facility can be honored with Providigm’s Embracing Quality Award in one or more of three categories; deficiency-free survey, prevention of hospital readmissions, and for superior levels of customer satisfaction.
“The Embracing Quality Awards are given to nursing homes who have not only demonstrated a commitment to quality improvement efforts by achieving QAPI Accreditation, but who have also achieved exceptional and measurable results in the areas of survey performance, readmissions, and satisfaction,” says Miranda Meadow, Providigm’s Accreditation Program Manager. “These awards are Providigm’s recognition of that link between effort and outcome.”
Skilled nursing facilities were only eligible to win a 2015 Embracing Quality Award if they achieved standards for Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) as required by Providigm’s Accreditation Standards 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.
“It is an honor to win the Embracing Quality Award for Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement.” said Patrick Pingel, Chief Executive Officer. “This prestigious recognition is a testimony to the hard work and dedication of our employees to providing excellent care to our residents.”
