Skilled Nursing Facility Heart Failure Certification
Coral Harbor Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center has earned two prestigious national recognitions. On the heels of receiving accreditation from The Joint Commission, the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care, Coral Harbor Rehab earned the American Heart Association’s (AHA) new Skilled Nursing Facility Heart Failure Center Certification.
We received Nursing Care Center Accreditation after a rigorous, unannounced onsite review by The Joint Commission, an independent, nonprofit organization. During the visit, the team evaluated compliance with performance standards across a range of areas, including post-acute care, emergency management, environment of care, infection prevention and control, and medication management, as well as rights and responsibilities of the individual and leadership.
The AHA’s new Skilled Nursing Facility Heart Failure Center Certification – earned by less than 1% of skilled nursing facilities nationwide, to date – focuses on program management, personnel education, clinical management, care coordination and performance improvement, as well as patient and caregiver education and support. AHA-defined care strategies and services aim to improve outcomes for those with chronic heart failure and its co-morbidities, and reduce readmissions.
