As we close out 2012, it’s nice to look back and gaze upon the many successes Senior Care Centers achieved over the last 12 months. Each Senior Care Centers facility in Texas takes pride in caring for and treasuring every resident like family, and we’re honored when the state recognizes our efforts. Below are a few examples!
Vice President of Clinical Operations, Sunny Stout is one of our proudest success stories this year. With over 30 years of experience training nurses working in long term care facilities, Sunny has been a valuable member of the Senior Care Centers team. In November, the Texas Health Care Association honored Sunny with the highest honor attainable in the long-term care profession, the Better Life Award, at their conference in San Antonio. Stout received the award not because of her outstanding commitment to care for residents, but to the their quality of life.
Another example highlights efforts by two different facilities. The Mission Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and Senior Care Centers of San Angelo both received gold medals for restraint reduction from the Texas Medical Foundation. As a part of our approach to care, we never want to restrict our residents from movement unless it is absolutely necessary for their health or safety. The Texas Medical Foundation recognized these two facilities for their outstanding achievement in excelling at this practice.
Senior Care Centers at Stephenville was recognized by their local community as the Stephenville Empire Tribune’s Reader Choice as the “Best Nursing Home in Erath County”. The facility is an outstanding example of the quality of Senior Care Centers and that our approach to care is proven to increase the quality of life while lending our residents a helping hand.
Due to their implementation of AccuNurse, the Hearthstone facility earned the gold award in the transitions category of the McKnight’s Technology Awards. This facility won the award because they were able to lower readmission to the hospital by 5.5 percent. This is a great example of how Senior Care Centers embraced emerging healthcare technology in 2012.
Senior Care Centers has always cared from the inside out and we’re glad to see our approach recognized for its effectiveness. Congratulations to all of these facilities and Senior Care Centers staff on a fantastic year!
