Innovative Practice Program Synopsis - 2013

Karen Morris in Clinical & Quality

At our annual convention in June, the 2013 winners of NYSHFA’s  “Innovative Practice Program” presented their programs to the membership in an educational session and were presented with their recognition plaques at the Awards Banquet. The four winning entries were selected by the Clinical and Quality Services Committee chaired by Nancy Tourje.

All the programs submitted this year demonstrated the diversity and creativity of the staff in our membership’s skilled nursing facilities across the state.  One of the program's criteria is that the innovative practices that are submitted can be replicated by other facilities. In order to facilitate this process, each year we disseminate a synopsis of all the programs we received. Our hope in providing you with this information is that it be shared with your Quality Improvement Team to stimulate some creative programming ideas for your facility.
 
We wish to thank all those facilities that participated in the program and encourage members to consider submitting their facility's innovative practices for the 2014 awards. Program brochures and nomination forms will be mailed to all members in the fall.
