LifeQuest Nursing Center Receives National Embracing Quality Award for Achievement in SURVEY PERFORMANCE

Diane Orzechowski, Administrator

LifeQuest Nursing Center was recently awarded the Providigm Embracing Quality Award for 2013 for exceptional achievement in Survey Performance. With only 295 facilities receiving awards in 2013, this puts LifeQuest 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.

“It is an honor to win the Embracing Quality Award for Survey Performance,” said Rebecca Burak, Director of Nursing. “This prestigious recognition is a tribute to the hard work of our employees and their dedication to providing excellent care to our residents.”
