04/19/2017

Cook Senior Living Center, a service of Cook Medical Center in Adel, was recently awarded a certificate of achievement by the Alliant Quality group. The local nursing home was presented with the award for achieving the National Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative measure of success, which is a Quality Measure Composite Score of less than six in 2016.
 
“A Quality Measure Composite Score is used to focus on processes to improve systems and measure individual tests of change at the nursing home level. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) prefer for long-term care facilities to keep a composite score below six. I am proud of our staff for achieving this important score to ensure all of our residents receive the highest quality of care,” states Melanie Covington, Director of Nursing at Cook Senior Living Center.

Alliant Quality is a health care consulting organization dedicated to improving the quality, safety and integrity of health care. Since 1970, Alliant Quality has provided a broad array of services to public and private organizations to increase the value, effectiveness and accessibility of health care.

“I am extremely proud of the staff at Cook Senior Living Center for receiving this award. They have worked very hard to identify opportunities for improvement and have engaged staff, patients, and families to achieve the results we have seen.  It is evident that they care deeply about their residents and want to work to ensure high quality care is provided to them,” states Mindy McStott, Vice President Quality for Tift Regional Health System.
