Palm Bay, Fla. – Anchor Care & Rehabilitation Center has been named to U.S. News & World Report’s Best Nursing Homes 2014 list.
The news magazine and website each year publishes a list of the best nursing homes in the United States based on data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The list is designed, according to U.S. News & World Report, to help the millions of Americans who will spend time in a nursing home this year.
Anchor Care & Rehabilitation Center has received accreditation for 2014 as a skilled nursing facility actively performing Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement activities.
The accreditation, presented by independent accreditor Providigm, LLC, demonstrates that the facility is continually assessing patients’ quality of life with regard to concerns such as pain, dignity, respect for a patient’s choice, and quality of care problems such as whether there are enough staff to meet patient needs, weight loss, infections, rehabilitation following acute injury or illness, and prevention of readmissions to hospital.
More than 1,000 Signature staff members registered for the recent Spirituality LearnFEST, a virtual learning conference that encouraged participants to consider the impact of spirituality, if fully activated, in a long-term care environment.
And that number doesn’t even include the many who joined in groups, in offices, breakrooms and wherever there were TVs or computers at Signature centers across 10 states to view the live broadcast. The event featured sessions that tied spirituality to numerous aspects of long-term care and health care, from clinical care to legislative involvement and the impact of spirituality in the workplace.
Signature’s Urban Segment has been highlighting different cultures since September 2014 in the Quality of Life department. Every month a country is celebrated with weekly activities representing that specific country. Staff and residents learn about the culture which includes, crafts, food, language, famous landmarks, and learning about the customs and traditions.
China was highlighted during the month of February. Urban Indiana, Urban North, and Urban South celebrated the Chinese New Year on February 19, 2015. Each community in Urban created their own version of the Chinese dragon for their celebration. The top two dragons in each sub-segment were the winners! The residents are still talking about the celebrations held at their communities.
