Daughters of Miriam Recognized for Quality Achievements

Daughters of Miriam Center/The Gallen Institute was recognized by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) for its achievements through the Quality Initiative Recognition Program, which honors member facilities for their individual work in achieving AHCA/NCAL Quality Initiative goals.

Daughters of Miriam Center has met the goals set by the program and exceeded its peer organizations in the percentage of both short- and long-stay residents who require hospitalizations as well as the percentage of acute-stay residents who are successfully discharged back to the community.

Out of 365 long-term care facilities in the state of New Jersey, 135 are AHCA members and, of those, only 40 met the goals of the Quality Initiative. Daughters of Miriam Center is proud to be included in this elite group and was subsequently honored at the AHCA’s Quality Summit in New Orleans. “This achievement overall represents not only improvement on a set of quality measures in these centers but also significant improvements in outcomes among the elderly they serve, such as fewer hospitalizations, more discharges back to the community and stopping the use of antipsychotics that can be harmful,” said Dr. David Gifford, AHCA/NCAL Senior Vice President of Quality and Regulatory Affairs. “We applaud Daughters of Miriam Center for making a difference in the lives of their nursing home residents and subacute patients.”
