The Advancing Excellence in America's Nursing Homes campaign has updated its campaign with nine goals and added fresh resources to help long term care providers meet their quality goals. Facilities that register must pick at least one process AND one clinical outcome goal of the nine choices. Some of the previous goals have changed names, such as restraints and falls, which are now under mobility. New goals include person-centered care, hospitalizations and consistent assignment. So please go to the Advancing Excellence website
to sign up for your new goals. If you have any questions, please contact Steve McClain at firstname.lastname@example.org
or calling (502) 425-5000.
CareLink magazine is published twice a year by KAHCF and printed by Naylor Publishing. The magazine features topics and trends long term care providers are facing. Interested advertisers can learn more about featuring their company and products in the magazine here.
