Harrison House Receives Excellence Ranking by Resident Families, and the American Health Care Association
SNOW HILL, M.D. – Harrison House of Snow Hill, a Harrison Senior Living community, has been recognized by resident families for its excellence, according to results of the Maryland Nursing Home Family Experience of Care Survey.
Resident families were asked to rate Harrison House of Snow Hill in such categories as staff and administration of the nursing home; care provided to residents; food and meals; physical aspects of the nursing home; overall rating of care received at the nursing home; and more.
Harrison House of Snow Hill exceeded statewide averages with an almost 90% overall satisfaction rate, with statewide averages falling around 70%.
“Since Harrison Senior Living first opened its doors, our number one focus has been our residents’ wellbeing and happiness. We are proud to know our residents and their families recognize the distinctive attention that goes into serving their loved ones, setting us apart from other providers.” said Harrison Saunders, President and CEO of Harrison Senior Living. “This is a wonderful way to commemorate Harrison House of Snow Hill’s 45 years in service.”
Harrison Senior Living was founded in 1967 by James and Katherine Harrison, opening its first location 50 years ago in 1972. Harrison House of Snow Hill opened its doors five years later in Katherine Harrison’s hometown of Snow Hill, Maryland.
Harrison House of Snow Hill, a 67-bed skilled nursing facility, focuses on rehabilitation therapies and memory care services. Its professional team provides 24-hour care in a comfortable, home-like setting to help its residents regain their functions after experiencing such physical setbacks as a fall or a stroke.
Harrison House of Snow Hill was also recognized earlier this year as a 2022 Silver-Achievement in Quality Award recipient by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL). The award is the second of three possible designations through the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program, which recognizes providers that have exceeded quality measure benchmarks for improved outcomes for staff, residents, and individuals with disabilities in long-term and post-acute care facilities.
“I am honored to accept this designation from the ACHA/NCAL,” said Harrison House of Snow Hill’s Administrator, Juliet Fountain. “These latest achievements exemplify our team’s dedication to our patients’ recoveries, their ongoing health and our team’s ability to provide the best possible healthcare services. The Silver Award reflects our focus on these goals and we cannot wait to pursue Gold in the future!”
The Silver-Achievement in Quality Award will be presented to Harrison House of Snow Hill during AHCA/NCAL’s 73rd Convention Expo in Nashville, Tennessee, on October 9-12, 2022.
