WARWICK, NY – (June 24) The notice to all the employees at Schervier Pavilion, a skilled nursing facility on the Warwick, NY campus of Bon Secours Charity Health System, read, “Let’s celebrate!” and followed with an invitation for all employees to attend a barbecue on Thursday, June 19.
Nursing Home Compare, a useful tool for consumers available on the official United States Government Website for Medicare, had recently awarded Schervier Pavilion, its highest “much above average” five-star rating in overall quality.
The ratings, containing quality of care information on every Medicare and Medicaid-certified nursing home in the country, including over 15,000 nationwide, allow consumers to compare information about nursing homes.
During National Nursing Home Week in May, Schervier Pavilion Administrator Lisa Brocky announced the receipt of the five-star rating, stating that the prestigious award was the result of the outstanding dedication and teamwork of every member of her staff.
And so on Thursday, June 19, every employee had an opportunity to enjoy pulled pork, barbecued chicken, corn-on- the-cob, cold drinks and other traditional barbecue selections served in the facility’s courtyard at times convenient to each of the three shifts.
“We are extremely proud of the work our care team has accomplished to achieve this five star rating,” said Brocky. “We strive to give our residents the quality of life and level of dignity they deserve. This prestigious recognition is a tribute to the hard work of our team and their dedication to providing excellent care to our residents. And this celebration was just one way to say, ‘Thank you.”
Schervier Pavilion, a member of the Bon Secours Charity Health System, is a 120-bed skilled nursing facility licensed by the New York State Department of Health. Dedicated to the highest standard of health care excellence, its full range of services, such as its therapeutic recreational program, are designed to respond to each individual’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
In addition to quality long term care services, Schervier Pavilion also offers a wide range of short-term (sub acute) care needs. Its sub acute services include IV therapy, Rehabilitation therapy and wound care. These services afford residents the ability to recuperate for a short time in the sub-acute unit of the facility and then return to the community where they can resume a more independent life. In some cases, they can then enter Schervier Pavilion’s Day-At-A-Time, an innovative medical adult day care program that provides nursing services, medication administration, ongoing evaluations, and stimulating activities tailored to each individual’s needs and abilities.
