Five Nevada Nursing Homes Receive HealthInsight Quality Award
Annual Program Encourages Excellence in Patient Care
Las Vegas — Five Nevada nursing homes are being recognized today for demonstrating excellence in providing quality care.
HealthInsight, a nonprofit, community-based health care collaborative working to improve health and health care for patients and providers, will present the HealthInsight Quality Award to nursing homes across the state at the Nevada Health Care Association Annual Convention at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe this afternoon. The award recognizes nursing homes for excelling in a number of quality of care measures.
In order to meet criteria for this Quality Award, nursing homes had to rank in the top 25 percent of performers in the nation, based on MDS 3.0 Quality Measures from Nursing Home Compare, as well as demonstrate a successfully implemented quality improvement program in their facilities.
“HealthInsight is proud to recognize these award recipients,” said Donna Thorson, HealthInsight Nevada senior project manager. “All five of the nursing homes receiving the Quality Award show a passionate commitment to person-centered care and development of systematic performance improvement.”
The 2017 HealthInsight Quality Award recipients are Highland Manor of Mesquite in Mesquite, Nevada State Veterans Home in Boulder City, Carson Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Carson City, Rosewood Rehabilitation Center in Reno and Life Care Center of Reno in Reno.
