Outcomes and Accreditations

Achieving Excellence through Accreditation

The Inpatient Rehabilitation Center at  Finley Hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and the Commission of Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), as a Comprehensive Inpatient Acute Rehabilitation Program. These accreditation reinforce trust and confidence that we are committed to enhancing the quality of our services through a voluntary process of accountability. 

CARF is an independent, not-for-profit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.

Rehabilitation Program Evaluation

What to Score...

The Quality Indicator scores should reflect the patient's actual performance of the activity, not what the patient should be able to do, not a simulation of the activity, or not what they are expected to do in a different environment.

The concept of Burden of Care

Refers to type and amount of assistance required for an individual to perform basic life activities effectively.

The question is: How much assistance does the individual receive from another person or with the use of an assistive device?

Unit Outcome Targets

Finley Hospital's Inpatient Rehab Unit has established targets related to unit outcomes. Our target for discharge to home/community setting is 80% or greater. In 2021, our discharge to home/community setting rate for all patients was 75%. Our target for Quality Indicator (QI) Self Care change is 12 and Mobility is 25. In 2021, our QI Self Care change was 11, and the QI Mobility change was 26 for all patients.

Performance Improvement

The concept of measuring the output of a particular process or procedure, then modifying the process or procedure to increase the output, increase efficiency, or increase the effectiveness of the process or procedure.
