Avamere Rehabilitation of Eugene McKnight's Award

November 12, 2019


For Immediate Release: 11/12/19

EUGENE, Ore. – Avamere Rehabilitation of Eugene, a skilled nursing community in Eugene, Oregon, earned the Silver Keep It Super Simple Award for its staffing tool as part of the 2019 McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Awards.

Avamere Rehabilitation of Eugene’s staffing tool allows nursing leadership to assign CNA workloads based on resident acuity.

To create the tool, the team recorded staff ratings of resident acuity and used a histogram to determine mean staff ratings for each resident. They then compared this rating to scores for activities of daily living, recorded by the community’s electronic health record software.

Ultimately, this staffing tool enables their nurses to assign workloads quicker.

According to McKnight’s, their annual technology awards competition recognizes teams who harness technology to better serve residents and their business interests.

“This year’s winners show that technology is making great inroads into post-acute care settings,” said John O’Connor, Editorial Director for McKnight’s.

Avamere Rehabilitation of Eugene is regularly recognized for their advancements in technology and providing exceptional care. The team earned another McKnight’s award for their sleep program in October 2018, and more recently, received the 2019 Advanced Quality Assurance & Performance Improvement Accreditation for the third consecutive year.
