Bright lights. Big stage. Blaring music. A rock concert? Well…kind of.
The event is one of the largest gatherings of the long-term and post-acute care profession. The stars are nurses and administrators who are leading their nursing homes to the top of the charts in health care quality. The cheering crowd is their peers celebrating the accomplishments of their friends and colleagues.
That was the scene for 10 Alabama nursing homes receiving national quality awards from the American Health Care Association. The presentations are part of the American Health Care Association’s 67th Annual Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Burns Nursing & Rehab received the Silver – Achievement in Quality Award for outstanding performance in the health care profession. It’s the ninth Alabama skilled nursing care center to earn this award.
As a recipient of the Silver – Achievement in Quality Award, Burns Nursing & Rehab demonstrates systematic advancements in quality, plans for continual improvement and sustainable organizational goals.
“Quality improvement is a journey, not a destination,” Burns Nursing & Rehab Administrator Mark DeArman said. “Since my grandparents founded this nursing home in 1966, we’ve always worked to provide better care for our residents and rehab patients. Earning this award is another milestone in our journey.”
Burns Nursing & Rehab is one of 191 skilled nursing care centers from 45 states receiving the silver award in 2017. Click here to read more about Burns Nursing & Rehab’s quality achievements.
