MONTROSE – Montrose Health Center has been named to the Iowa National Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative Honor Roll to recognize its performance on the Nursing Home Compare long-stay quality measures. Nursing homes on Nursing Home Quality Collaborative Honor Roll have achieved a quality measure composite score of six or less for at least one quarter, which has aligned with the top 10 percent of nursing homes in the U.S.
“Nursing homes on the Iowa National Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative Honor Roll have demonstrated a focus on safety and quality,” said Deanna Curry, Telligen Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) quality improvement manager. “We applaud the hard work of Montrose Health Center and its commitment to its residents and staff to provide excellent long-term care.”
“This honor is a direct reflection of the outstanding staff at Montrose Health Center. Our employees get to know every resident and truly love and care for each one like family. We all watch for, and stay on top of, small changes in each resident to avoid the little things from developing into larger issues. Our stable staff, low employee turnover, and many long term employees make it possible to provide the great care our residents expect and deserve. We already know we provide quality care at Montrose Health Center but it sure is nice to be recognized by the Collaborative as one of the top 10% of nursing homes nationally!” David Payne, Administrator.
The National Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative (NNHQCC), led by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and QIN-QIOs, launched in April 2015 with the mission to improve care for the 1.4 million nursing home residents across the United States.
