Care Center receives quality award

October 11, 2017

Henderson Care Center has received the significant achievement of scoring 6.0 or less on the Nursing Home Quality Composite Score, for the second quarter of 2017. The facility is participating with the Great Plains Quality Care Collaborative on quality improvement areas and has exceeded the standards for every quality measure each month of the second quarter.

The award reads, “Your work has contributed to improving the quality of care and quality of life for residents in your nursing home, and also for nursing home residents across the country.”

Sherri Rediger, Henderson Care Center Director of Nursing said, “This is a great accomplishment for our facility! We focus on improving the quality of care for residents everyday. Our staff deserves congratulations for this well-deserved recognition.”

The Great Plains Quality Innovation Network, as part of the Quality Care Collaborative, grades each facility on important factors based on resident health: disparities in diabetes care, increased immunizations, reduced healthcare-acquired conditions in nursing homes, improved care coordination and medication safety, and more. The goal of these scores is to accomplish four major goals: promoting effective prevention and treatment of chronic disease by promoting safe care that is person- and family-centered, reliable and accessible; making care safer and reducing harm caused in the delivery of care; promoting effective communication and coordination of care; and making care more affordable.

CIMRO of Nebraska is part of the Great Plains Quality Innovation Network (QIN) and serves as the Medicare Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) for Nebraska, Kansas, North Dakota and South Dakota to best serve the needs of healthcare providers and Medicare consumers across the Great Plains region.
