AHCA/NCAL Quality Initiative Recognition Program

The AHCA/NCAL Quality Initiative Recognition Program is designed to recognize AHCA nursing center members that demonstrate the attainment of one or more of the four AHCA Quality Initiative goals: Safely Reduce Hospital Readmissions by 15%; Increase Staff Stability by 15%; Increase Customer Satisfaction to 90%; and Safely Reduce the Off-Label Use of Antipsychotics by 15%  

The recognition of achievers is a tiered-approach, where member centers will increase their recognition as they accomplish multiple Quality Initiative goals. A total of 393 skilled nursing centers in Florida have achieved AHCA Quality Initiative goals, with three assisted living facilities achieving an NCAL Quality Initiative goal.
