Charleston, W.Va. – AMFM Nursing & Rehabilitation Centers, West Virginia’s largest family-owned skilled nursing and rehabilitation company, had seven centers receive national basic or advanced accreditation for their continuous efforts aimed at improving quality of care and life for their residents during the third quarter of 2018.
E. A. Hawse Nursing & Rehabilitation Center and Fayette Nursing & Rehabilitation Center met the criteria for advanced accreditation by Providigm. These centers demonstrated advanced use of the quality improvement resources that mirror the state inspection process by focusing on observations, interviews, clinical systems and improvement processes.
Six AMFM centers received the Basic Accreditation. Those centers were Braxton Health Care Center, Webster, Summers, McDowell, Wyoming and Wayne Nursing & Rehabilitation Centers.
The value of the system is beyond preparing a skilled nursing facility for the annual health inspection survey, but builds a foundation in quality assurance, performance improvement, customer satisfaction and state and federal compliance.
Those four standards are a comprehensive number of assessments, continuous activities throughout the year, coverage of varying and unique patients, and areas of correction that have been identified and went through the improvement process.
Some basic accreditation examples include at least 50 resident observations, admission records review and combinations of resident and family interviews within each quarter of the calendar year. Basic Accreditation also includes at least five staff interviews during the four calendar quarters.
To reach the Advanced Accreditation, those facilities went above the criteria for the basic accreditation, and is distinguished using random samples and increased performance activity. More information on the accreditations, please visit the Providigm website.
AMFM operates 18 skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers throughout West Virginia. The care centers operate in Braxton, Boone, Clay, Cabell, Summers, Fayette, Hardy, Greenbrier, Webster, Wayne, McDowell, Lincoln, Wyoming, Harrison (Clarksburg & Bridgeport), Marshall, Taylor and Mercer counties.
