Pine Run reports stellar
Northampton Herald, August 3, 2012
Pine Run celebrates a third distinctive inspection in 2012 receiving a zero deficiency survey on June 26th in the Pine Run Home Care Agency. Managed by Anita Brooks, a Pine Run Associate for 26 years, the Pine Run Home Care Agency employs 19 companions who provide key support services such as medication reminders, assistance with bathing, and light housekeeping to retirees living at Pine Run.
Licensed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the agency serves a demand in the community for helpful home services that boost well-being and independence.
Earlier in June, the specialized memory care neighborhood at Pine Run, called The Garden, was awarded a perfect survey inspection by the Department of Public Welfare.
The annual survey included an assessment of patient medicalrecords and a review of staff training and education.
The inspection team observed residents and staff interactions to underscore a new focus on person-centered care in the senior living industry.
Pine Run Health Center, a 74-bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility, earned a deficiency free survey in February, and also received four out of five stars – an “above average” overall ranking – from Medicare.
Pine Run has an active quality improvement program in place resulting in patient satisfaction scores higher than 90% and, in the last quarter 96% respondents were willing to recommend Pine Run.
Pine Run is rolling out Visible Progress, a program highlighting milestones in rehabilitative therapy outcomes, in partnership with Aegis Therapies.
Owned by Doylestown Hospital, the Pine Run Retirement Community is a not-for- profit provider of independent living cottages and apartments for seniors 65+. Additional levels of care are available to the local community. Call 1- 800-992- 8992 to schedule a visit or
