National Healthcare Quality Week

National Healthcare Quality Week, celebrated annually in the third week of October, serves as a reminder of the vital role that healthcare quality professionals play in elevating patient care and ensuring safety in healthcare settings. This special week highlights the dedicated individuals who work tirelessly behind the scenes to maintain and enhance the quality of healthcare services.

A Comprehensive Approach to Quality
Healthcare quality encompasses a wide array of facets, including patient safety, the effectiveness of care, patient-centeredness, timeliness, efficiency, and equity. It is the goal of healthcare quality professionals to meet and exceed these standards, ensuring that patients receive the highest standard of care.

Prioritizing Patient Safety
Above all, patient safety is paramount. Reducing medical errors, infections, and adverse events is a primary focus. Healthcare quality professionals regularly conduct assessments, audits, and training to ensure that healthcare organizations reach and maintain the highest standards of patient safety.

Putting Patients at the Center
The patient-centered care model emphasizes treating patients with respect, involving them in their care decisions, and addressing their unique needs and preferences. Timeliness ensures patients receive care when they need it, while efficiency reduces waste and keeps healthcare costs manageable. Additionally, equity ensures healthcare access and fairness for all individuals, regardless of their backgrounds or circumstances.

Acknowledging Dedication and Pursuing Excellence
National Healthcare Quality Week is a time to recognize and appreciate the dedication of healthcare quality professionals. It’s also an opportunity to reflect on the progress made and the challenges that lie ahead. As we continue to emphasize excellence in healthcare quality, we are committed to making healthcare better for all.

"OMG!! This nursing home is amazing especially this one worker. Her name is Michelle. When I tell you she's so great at what she does, I mean she's great. I visit my aunt quite frequently who resides on the 7th floor. Prior to her being assigned on that floor; there were a lot of unsanitary conditions especially the stench and filth. All of a sudden I notice this girl (Michelle) has been working on the floor and all of those unsanitary conditions including the stench left. I never seen a person that take so much pride and dignity in cleaning all of those rooms and the whole floor from top to bottom. This floor is like a brand new floor that I never seen. I'm going to pay her a visit the next time I see my aunt and make her an offer at my firm as a executive assistant!"

"This is a great place for rehabilitation... my father was at split rock on Baychester ave. In bronx and would go back and forth to hospital every 3 or 4 days because of carelessness with the staff... we said enough was enough when my father flatlined .WAYNE REHABILITATION has saved my fathers life. They are very good at diagnosing, rehabilitation and nutrition. Everyone there looks like they love their job. Never a problem with anyone any my father loves it there. He has recovered nicely and will be coming home soon. I highly recommend WAYNE REHABILITATION AND NURSING to everyone."

"I had a knee replacement and went to Wayne Center through a referral from a friend. I immediately noticed the ambiance of a modern facility to be very appealing clean well lit and organized. An administrative staff visited my room and explained their role and expectations. Nurses were very attentive and especially to the elderly and always smiling. Except for breakfast the food was very good quality and taste. Rehab staff was great I enjoyed working with Rosalyn she really made me work. Only drawback in rehab was they need another machine for legs. Staff was A+ from nurses, administration and maintenance-"noticed when their was a spill on the floor they would quickly clean up".
I would definitely refer anyone who is thinking of sending their parent, grandparent or loved one."
