Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Home Campaign REBRANDED to the National Nursing Home Quality Improvement Campaign

South Dakota Foundation for Medical Care

Same great resource … same website address https://nhqualitycampaign.org/default.aspx…just a new name and logo and is now being sponsored by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). 

The National Nursing Home Quality Improvement (NNHQI) Campaign continues to provide free evidence-based and model-practice resources to support continuous quality improvement. Recently the website received a face lift to reflect nine quality improvement focus areas:

· Consistent Assignment

· Medications

· Hospitalizations

· Mobility / Falls

· Person Centered Care

· Pain

· Staff Stability

· Pressure Ulcers

· Infections

Every South Dakota nursing home had previously signed up as a member of the Advancing Excellence campaign … your membership continues just as before. If you cannot recall your facility’s username or password, click here for instructions to obtain; however, you are able to browse the site and access many of the tools without “officially” signing in.  Check out who is enrolled nationally in the campaign state by state.
