Harmony Healthcare chooses Advancing Excellence goal
Harmony Healthcare International is embracing the Advancing Excellence in America's Nursing Homes Campaign. The company has chosen to focus on Mobility among the Advancing Excellence goals,
“Sixty-seven percent of people over 64 who fall and fracture a hip will die within 2½ years of the fall,” said Kris Mastrangelo, OTR/L, LNHA, MBA, president and CEO of Harmony Healthcare International, “A frightening statistic that led us to support encouraging and maintaining mobility in America's nursing homes. We have chosen Mobility from among the nine Advancing Excellence Goals and we have committed our time and energy to promoting that goal to our client base and constituencies.”
The Mobility goal strengthens residents' muscle and bones which makes fractures less likely in the event of a fall, the MA-based consulting company said.
