For more than ten years, we have participated in the Leading Age, Quality First Covenant. We know it and show it to our residents each day.

Quality First

Peter Becker Community is committed to the Quality First Covenant, an effort advanced by Leading Age. Leading Age is a national organization committed to improving and advocating for the care of older adults. The Quality First Covenant affirms that we have a special stewardship responsibility to maintain: Continuous Quality Improvement, Public Disclosure and Accountability, Consumer and Family Rights, Workforce Excellence, Community Involvement, Ethical Practices and Financial Integrity. We pledge to remain faithful to that covenant and believe that our commitment will enable us to carry out our strategic plan.

Leading the Way

Our campus is also participating in a project designed to evaluate the INTERACT quality improvement program. We are one of only 251 nursing homes in the U.S. selected to participate. INTERACT (“Interventions to Reduce Acute Care Transfers”) is a program designed to help us improve the early identification, evaluation, documentation and communication about changes in the status of our residents.  The goal of INTERACT is to improve care and reduce the frequency of preventable transfers to the hospital. You can learn more about INTERACT at the following website: Visit the INTERACT Website.
