Overview

Mission Statement

The Mission of Bethany Health Care Center is to provide quality care for our residents and patients in a manner which helps them to be connected with God, with other people and with the world in which they live. In the spirit of the Sisters of Saint Joseph who sponsor Bethany; we bring to our mission of health care a desire to promote unity and reconciliation wherever there is brokenness, alienation, or separation.


Background Statement

In 1916 the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph received donated land to build a Rest Home for Sisters who ministered throughout the Greater Boston area and beyond.  To meet the increased healthcare needs of its Sisters, in 1961 Bethany Health Care Center, a 169-bed short and long-term healthcare facility was established. Today, Bethany is home to Sisters of St. Joseph (many who helped lay the foundation for Catholic education throughout the Archdiocese of Boston), as well as, for other religious communities including Marist Missionary Sisters, Sisters of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd, Franciscan Missionary Sisters, and for Sisters of St. Chretienne as well as for residents from the Metropolitan Boston and MetroWest communities. Named to the 2012 Honor Roll in U.S. News & World Report's annual Best Nursing Homes, Bethany is rated in the top-rated 39 nursing homes in all 50 states.  Only 1 home in 400 was able to meet Honor Roll standards.  In July, 2012, Bethany was selected by Leading Age (a national association of 6,000 non-profit organizations) as the 2012 Innovation in Care and Services Award recipient for its Model of Care Program, introduced a decade ago. The Model of Care program has been adopted as the preferred model of care by residents, families and staff.  A "treat in place" modality of care has significantly reduced the numbers of acute hospitalizations to a less than 1% hospital readmission rate.  Bethany serves the community regardless of an individual's socioeconomic or religious affiliation and experiences reimbursement rate losses for approximately 82% of its residents; including an 83% Medicaid population on Skilled Nursing Floors (SNF) floors (2-4), compared to a State Medicaid population of 45.8% (FY 2010 data) for long-term care facilities, and a 100% Medicaid population on two Rest Home floors (5 & 6). Residents on (SNF) floors range from 68 to 102 years old with 20% of these residents either ambulating independently and/or needing some form of supervision; 65% suffer from some form of dementia. On Rest Home floors (5 & 6) for women religious only, residents, range in age from 70 to 101 years old.  Although independently ambulatory, some experience limited physical mobility and require some assistance with daily living and medications. 


Impact Statement

2012 accomplishments: 
Among 12 long-term healthcare facilities nationwide selected to participate in a “Best Practices” study by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services.
  1. Receiving a 100% resident referral score in a resident/family State conducted resident referral satisfaction survey.
  2. Experiencing a less than1% hospital readmission rate in response to its Model of Care Program’s “treat in place” modality of care and adopting a “consistency of care” method of services for Skilled Nursing floors (2-4).  These adopted Bethany models of service have increased the quality of life, reduced the number infections and use of psychotropic drugs for this aged (average age 89 years old) population.
  3. Receiving a deficiency-free rating from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health; a Five-Star rating earns Bethany positioning among top-rated 39 nursing homes in all 50 states.
  4. Through Bethany’s Cultural Change Program, Bethany was able to update resident rooms and furnishings, accomplishing the program’s goal to improve the lives and living experiences of its residents, reinforcing their ability to live out their lives to their fullest capacity.

 

2013 Goals:

1.      Upgrading its 16-year old Keane Clinical Software medical software with state-of-the art Keane Software System to ensure the continued high-level of performance that has earned Bethany national healthcare recognition.

2.      Continue to achieve desired outcomes and benchmarks for Bethany’s Model of Care and “consistency of care” programs, monitoring data, quality measures and compatibility with Bethany policies and procedures and survey results.

3.      To raise the approximately $914,000 in revenues needed to complete Bethany’s Cultural Change Program goals for its Skilled Nursing and Rest Home floors.

 


Needs Statement

To ensure that Bethany Health Care Center residents continue to receive quality healthcare in a “homelike environment” that fosters each residents’ ability to live out their lives to their fullest potential, Bethany’s 5 most pressing needs include:

 1.   Purchase an up-graded state-of-the art Keane Clinical Software database at a cost of $60,000

2.  Complete the replacement of resident room floors with Teknoflor floors 2-4 at a cost of $41,332.00.  
 
3    Purchase (10) Med-Mizer Retractabed electric adjustable bed frames  and mattresses (floors 2 thru 4) for a total cost of $23,403.

4,   Purchase (23) Med-Mizer Retractabed electric adjustable bed frames and mattresses (floors 5 & 6) for a cost of $51,526.21.

5.   Renovate and expand Bethany’s Physical Therapy Department, including counters, cabinets, flooring, cove and equipment at a cost of $42,500.

 Each resident’s ability to remain independent in a more home-like up-dated environment is reinforced and Bethany’s capacity to provide appropriate levels of medical, physical, psychosocial and emotional support and socialization is enhanced with the above purchases.


CEO Statement

Identified by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) as a high performing Five-Star Quality nursing home, in September, 2012, Bethany Health Care Center was among 12 long-term healthcare facilities nationwide selected to participate in a “Best Practices” study. The study is being conducted for the purposes of launching a National Quality Improvement Collaborative led by (CMS) and the Quality Improvement Organizations (QIOs) across the country: to improve organizational systems; consistently and effectively improve the quality of care delivered to individuals living in nursing homes.  Despite realizing reimbursement rate losses for approximately 82% of its residents, Bethany serves the community regardless of an individual's socioeconomic or religious affiliation. Recognized by U.S. News and World Report (2012) as one of the top 39 long-term healthcare facilities in the country, Bethany’s delivery of quality healthcare has been on-going. Recipient of the American Medical Directors Foundation/Evercare 2009 Award as the 1st place winner for improving the quality of life for persons living in nursing homes; that same year, Sister Jacquelyn McCarthy, R.N., CSJ, CEO/Administrator received the Boston Business Journal’s 2009 Champions in Health Care Award for individuals who are changing the way healthcare organizations do business. Under the 16-year leadership of Sister Jacquelyn McCarthy, R.N.,CSJ, Bethany experiences a low nursing turnover rate which contributes directly to Bethany’s consistently receiving 100% in referral recommendations from resident and family member respondents to State conducted referral surveys. Bethany’s adopted “consistency of assigned care” model for its residents has increased their quality of life, reduced the number of infections and falls. These results are directly correlated with employee satisfaction and long-term commitment. During an October 2012 Employee Recognition Ceremony, 22 employees completing between 5 and 35 years of service were recognized for a combined 210 years of service. Bethany continues to promote a culturally diverse healthcare institution and support staff––47% of all Bethany employees were born in another country (94 of 200) June 2012.  Despite the fiscal challenges Bethany faces with its 83% Medicaid population on Skilled Nursing Floors 2 through 4, (compared to a State Medicaid population of 45.8% for FY 2010 data for long-term care facilities), and a 100% Medicaid population on its two Rest Home floors, it is Bethany’s dedicated staff who keep Bethany standards high. 


Board Chair Statement

Bethany Health Care Center is a nationally recognized leader in the field of healthcare. It is rated as one of the top 39 long-term care facilities nationwide. This year Bethany was selected by the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services as one among 12 long-term healthcare facilities to be studied in order to improve the overall quality of care delivered by long-term care facilities nationwide. In this time of the Accountable Care Act, Bethany maintains a less than 1% readmission rate of residents back to acute care hospitals. Bethany models a rich unity in the midst of diversity and the employees are a living example of this. Of the 200 employees 94 come from countries beyond the United States. Bethany maintains a multi-cultural staff with low staff turnover, attributed to a high ratio of hands-on care (3.5-3.8 hours of nursing care per resident). Bethany Health Care Center strives to continue to be an innovative leader in the area of long-term healthcare by always keeping the care and dignity of each resident as the primary focus. It will do this though enhancing the Bethany Model of Care. A “treat in place” model that provides for consistent assignment of staff to resident and leads to staff and resident satisfaction, longevity of staff, and minimal readmissions to an acute care hospital. Bethany’s environmentally friendly programs cut cost. One example is their water conservation and production effort in producing 60% of its own energy. This savings affords more financial resources to be allocated to the delivery of quality healthcare for Bethany residents. As a Sponsored Ministry of the Sisters of St. Joseph, I commend Bethany for its achievements and fulfilling its mission. It is my privilege to serve a Chair of Bethany’s Board of Trustees. Sister Rosemary Brennan, CSJ, President of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston.

Programs

Bethany Cultural Change Program

The goal of Bethany’s Cultural Change Program emanates from its mission and is to improve the lives and living experiences of its residents and create a more contemporary, home-like, resident-centered and safe environment. Focused on the delivery of quality healthcare, essentially needed upgrades and renovations for the long-term healthcare facility, which maintains much of its 1961 original construction, have been deferred. In conjunction with a mandate by the Department of Public health for long-term care facilities which aims to de-institutionalize the environment of nursing homes, a Bethany Cultural Change Program (BCCP) was adopted. Incorporated into the BCCP is the on-going replacement of furnishings and upgrades for Bethany’s 2-4 Skilled Nursing Floors (SNF) and 5 and 6 Rest Home floors for women religious only. These upgrades include resident rooms, solariums, bathroom/ bathing areas, and flooring.
Budget  $4,388,485.60
Category  Health Care, General/Other Quality of Health Care
Population Served Elderly and/or Disabled Females Aging, Elderly, Senior Citizens
Program Short-Term Success  The wear and tear of beds and mattresses that results from daily use of long-term care residents necessitates replacement on an on-going basis. The renovation of Bethany Health Care Center’s physical therapy department and purchases of state-of-the art equipment would enhance Bethany’s ability to address the short term physical needs of its residents, and the broader community.
Program Long-Term Success  Augmenting Bethany’s award-winning healthcare, Bethany’s Cultural Change Program has enhanced its capacity to provide appropriate levels of medical, physical, psychosocial and emotional support and socialization for its residents. For many wheelchair-bound residents, Bethany’s Activity Center is the main source for their recreation. The observed excitement and joy on the faces of residents as they sat in each new chair (renovations and purchases made possible through the Cultural Change Program), together with an overheard comment that “the Activities Center was now more home like ” is reassurance that Bethany has begun to meet the goals of its Cultural Change Program. Many of Bethany’s residents suffer from chronic medical conditions and severe arthritis. The purchase of adjustable, electric high-low beds, in addition to providing therapeutic benefits, augments the medical care residents receive and reinforces each resident’s ability to remain independent.
Program Success Monitored By  Measurement of success is credited to adherence to a facility-wide assessment and improvement plan overseen by Bethany’s governing body and administration. The plan is mission based to provide quality care focused on each resident's needs and family member's satisfaction. It includes formulating methods to define problem identification, prioritizing as well as monitoring of resident healthcare needs, evaluation and documentation of results. Potential outcomes resulting from the remodeling, renovations, upgrades and new purchases will produce observed improvement in the physical and psychosocial well-being of each resident. Each resident’s ability to remain independent in a more home-like environment is reinforced. Bethany’s capacity to provide appropriate levels of medical, physical, psychosocial, and emotional support and socialization is further enhanced. Reconstructed bathrooms on Bethany’s 5th and 6th floors would be more accessible and afford more privacy.
Examples of Program Success  The replacement of worn and tattered room furnishings and beds for highly prioritized resident rooms have provided for the on-going safety of residents and observed therapeutic improvements in the physical and psychosocial well-being of residents. Each resident’s ability to remain independent and live their life to their fullest potential has been reinforced. Residents feel good about their home environments evidenced by Bethany’s consistently scoring 100% in resident/family State conducted referral satisfaction surveys. Since the completion of renovations of Bethany’s Activities Center, originally included in the Cultural Change Program, the utilization of the Activities Center has markedly increased. The warm and inviting environment has continued to increase the level of socialization among residents and families as observed not only in structured activities, but also in the daily use of the Center where residents can be seen visiting in the created conversational areas.

Bethany Model of Care Program

Fundamental to the BMCP is a “treat in place” modality of care. The program is led by the Medical Director, assisted by two primary nurse practitioners who provide five-day per week visits and 24-hour on-call availability. The Director of Nurses and two Assistant Directors of Nursing are integral to the program. The healthcare team’s commitment to the Organizational Performance Plan ensures daily collaboration of the interdisciplinary nursing and support teams in providing timely intervention and medical care. Comprehensive in-house medical services including a separately licensed medical clinic gives residents access to a wide range of medical treatments and rehabilitation services. These factors reduce the risks for infections. Residents benefit from a less than 1% acute hospital readmission rate and experience an enhanced quality of life and longevity. Since the program has been incorporated into Bethany Health Care Center's daily operational plan, there is no added cost.

Category  Health Care, General/Other Quality of Health Care
Population Served Elderly and/or Disabled Females Aging, Elderly, Senior Citizens
Program Short-Term Success  The daily collaboration of interdisciplinary nursing and support teams provide for timely intervention and implementation of medical care.  Addressing the immediate healthcare and emotional needs of new residents eases anxiety and adjustment to a new daily living experience for incoming residents. This early acclimation process prepares residents for positive outcomes. Bethany experiences a less than 1% acute hospital readmission rate and a 55% decrease in hospital admissions as well as lower mortality rates, and a decline in the number of infections.
Program Long-Term Success  The BMCP program contributes to a low turnover rate of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and certified nursing assistants which in turn reduces recruiting and training costs. The BMCP “treat in place” modality of care has resulted in costs savings associated with decreased hospitalizations, testing, medication costs and transportation services. Adopted as the preferred model of care by Bethany residents, families and staff and integrated with a “consistency of care” (by the same individual) method of delivery of service, these programs have ensured the delivery of quality of care, safety and quality of life for Bethany residents. Established benchmarks for measuring performance are used including the monitoring of: data, quality measures, compatibility with Bethany policies and procedures and survey results. Resident and family satisfaction is demonstrated in Bethany’s consistently scoring 100% in resident/family State conducted referral satisfaction surveys.
Program Success Monitored By  Defining success is credited to adherence to a facility-wide assessment and improvement plan overseen by the governing body and administration of Bethany Health Care Center. The plan is mission based to provide quality care focused on each resident’s needs and family members’ satisfaction. It includes formulating methods to define problem identification, prioritizing as well as observing resident healthcare needs, evaluation and documentation of results. To achieve the desired outcomes, established benchmarks for measuring each resident’s performance is used. These include: monitoring data, quality measures, compatibility with Bethany policies and procedures and survey results. Critical to maintaining quality healthcare and services for Bethany’s residents is the delivery of on-site medical, physical, occupational and speech therapy.
Examples of Program Success  Named to the 2012 Honor Roll in U.S. News & World Report's annual Best Nursing Homes, Bethany is included among the top-rated 39 nursing homes in all 50 states. Only 1 home in 400 was able to meet Honor Roll standards. In July, 2012, Bethany was selected by Leading Age (a national association of 6,000 non-profit organizations dedicated to expanding the world of possibilities for aging) as the 2012 Innovation in Care and Services Award recipient. Distinguished for the Bethany Model of Care Program, introduced a decade ago, the program has been adopted as the preferred model of care by residents, families and staff. Fundamental to the program is a "treat in place" modality of care resulting in significantly reduced numbers of acute hospitalizations. To this end Bethany residents benefit from a less than 1% hospital readmission rate.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

Under my leadership as CEO/Administrator, together with the leadership of our Director of Nurses, Susan Gonzales, R.N., Bethany experiences a low nursing turnover rate. This low nursing turnover rate contributes to Bethany’s consistently receiving 100% in referral recommendations from resident and family member respondents to State conducted surveys. These results are correlated with employee satisfaction. Providing a high ratio of hands-on medical care (3.5–3.8 hours of nursing care per resident) integrated with a consistency of caregivers assigned to each resident, ensures the delivery of optimal care for each resident and contributes to low staff turnover rates. The continuity of staff in Bethany’s delivery of healthcare makes it possible for staff to consistently observe and measure improvement in the psychosocial well-being of each resident. Bethany’s adopted “consistency of care” method of delivery of healthcare services ensures quality of care, safety and quality of life for residents while significantly reducing the number of infections and falls for its residents. Achieving a deficiency-free rating, when reviewed against over 500 standards from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, division of Health Care Quality, for 2011, demonstrates the continued commitment of Bethany’s healthcare team to the delivery of quality care. Despite realizing reimbursement rate losses for approximately 82% of our residents, Bethany serves the community regardless of an individual's socioeconomic or religious affiliation. Even with an 83% Medicaid population on Skilled Nursing Floors (2-4), compared to a State Medicaid population of 45.8% (FY 2010 data) for long-term care facilities, and a 100% Medicaid population on its two Rest Home floors, in 2012 Bethany ranked among the top 39 long-term care facilities in the country. Bethany’s environmental initiatives help reduce cost. These include but are not limited to melting down used needles into “hockey puck size,” resulting in a 90% hazardous waste removal. Installing metering components, with an upfront cost of $10,000, results in a $35,000.00 per year’s savings over the next 8 years. These cost savings are used to subsidize Bethany’s delivery of quality healthcare.

Bethany experiences an 83% Medicaid population on its three Skilled Nursing Floors and a 100% Medicaid population on its Rest Home Floors for women religious only. Despite these financial challenges Bethany has been recognized as a 5-Star long-term care healthcare facility (2012) U.S. News and World Reports and included among the top 39 long-term care facilities in the country. Bethany’s environmental and fundraising initiatives and a team of committed employees, have enabled Bethany to avoid staff reductions and to begin to address the critically needed resident room and furnishings upgrades and well as renovations and upgrades to its Activities Center.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

Bethany’s original Cultural Change Program budget in 2007 was $314,000. As the needs of Bethany and its residents grew and funding was raised, the Cultural Change Program budget was modified; including the incorporation of renovations for Bethany’s 5th and 6th floors, designated solely for women religious, at a cost of $3,120,000.00. These changes are reflected in the Cultural Change Program 2013 budget. Although reported in this application as a Capital Campaign, Bethany has historically not undertaken a Capital Campaign for its Cultural Change Program. In addition to major gift fundraising in soliciting corporations, foundations, and individuals, funds raised from Bethany’s 2013 golf tournament and “Making a Difference” Awards dinner will be designated for Bethany’s Cultural Change Program. In 2012 Bethany employed approximately 108 full-time employees and 92 part-time employees. Many of our part-time employees work more than one job. Health Care Reform has created hardship for not only Bethany but for its employees. It has been approximately 5 or 6 years since Bethany Health Care Center has received any inflationary cost relief. Bethany is grateful to the individuals, corporations and foundations that have helped raise the funds to begin addressing the upgrades in furnishing and renovations, some of which have not been addressed since Bethany’s original construction in 1961, that have “made a difference” in the lives of Bethany’s residents who today call Bethany home.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
