Molalla Nursing home awarded HealthInsight Quality award
Molalla Manor Care Center is one of 10 Oregon care providers for seniors and disabled persons to win the HealthInsight Quality award. The center is part of the Prestige Care Inc., which operates care and senior living operations in communities throughout the Western United States.
The center is one of 11 Prestige senior living and skilled nursing and rehabilitation care facilities in Oregon to win the award. It is being recognized by HealthInsight for demonstrating high-quality health care for residents and patients. It's one of five Prestige communities to achieve high scores within the Quality award program as well as improving their anti-psychotic medication quality measures.
"As long-term care providers we continually strive to enhance our quality of care and hold ourselves accountable to the high standards set by HealthInsight's Quality Award program," said Harold Delamarter, founding partner and CEO of Prestige Care. "These recognitions are a testament to the dedication of our caregivers and staff across Oregon and they exemplify the high-quality care we are committed to providing to those we serve in all of our care centers and communities."
The award, which was first handed out in 2004, began as a way to promote transparency in health care. It provides quality data used to identify high-performing providers, and publicizing the results helps improve healthcare outcomes as patients become more active and informed participants in their own care.
To meet criteria for the award, a skilled nursing center must rank at or above 75 percent of all facilities located in a state. That criteria is based on long-stay quality measures evaluating the percentages of residents who acquire certain infections, receive certain medications or require certain treatments as well as other factors. The center must also have a three-star rating on Nursing Home Compare.
Molalla Manor Care is one of more than 70 skilled nursing and senior living centers by Prestige Care Inc. The parent company offers centers for independent living, assisted living, memory care and rehabilitation and post-acute care. Its communities exist throughout the Western United States in Alaska, Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Nevada and Washington.
