Eight Alabama nursing homes will teach their counterparts how to improve resident care and quality of life at a statewide event.

A panel of health care experts chose these nursing homes as presenters for Alabama’s Best Practices 2015:

“Just as a rising tide lifts all boats, a better performing nursing home helps all nursing homes improve care,” Alabama’s Best Practices Director Pam Penland said. “I congratulate these presenters on using their knowledge and creativity to improve lives and their willingness to share their success with others.”

Employees of the eight skilled nursing care centers will develop interactive presentations and skits to teach the best practices to an expected audience of more than 350 people.

In addition, 13 nursing homes were selected for Honorable Mention. These nursing homes will display their best practice in the exhibit hall and be recognized during the day-long event.

Information from the presenters and honorable mention recipients will be included in the 2015 Alabama’s Best Practices Manual. Each attendee will receive a copy of the manual and can use the information to implement the best practices in their nursing home.

Alabama’s Best Practices Program will be held August 27, 2015, at the Cahaba Grand Conference Center in Birmingham.

Beginning August 17, this website will feature a different presenter’s Best Practice each day and show how it improves resident care and quality of life.
