Life Care Center of Cleveland achieved Gold rehab standard in parent company Life Care Centers of America’s 111-point quality audit.
Each Life Care building undergoes an annual audit of its core rehab program, assessing how the team works with other departments to provide a cohesive plan of care. Auditors (regional rehab associates with Life Care) score the rehab teams on four key areas: environment, human resources, clinical programming and systems management.
Facilities that achieve Gold standard are shown to have a strong, stable therapy team that is eligible to develop a specialty program based on the community’s needs.
“This is a great way to show that our rehab team is achieving quality of care,” said Jeremy Gravell, executive director at Life Care Center of Cleveland. “Working together, we give the utmost effort for our residents with our knowledge, years of experience, dedication and attention to details.”
Gravell shared that the facility is developing an orthopedic spine rehab specialty. When a community member is preparing for surgery (whether of the spine or other orthopedics, such as knee replacements), he or she can work with a therapist on exercises to strengthen the area and help speed recovery. After the surgery, Life Care’s therapists work with the patient to help him or her regain full strength, range of motion and independence.
For more information about the Gold rehab standard or about the upcoming rehab specialty, please call 476-3254, and ask for the rehab department.
