Stein Hospice has been named a 2013 Hospice Honors recipient, a prestigious award recognizing hospice agencies providing the best patient care as rated by the patient’s caregiver.
Established by Deyta, this annual honor recognizes the top 100 agencies that continuously provide the highest level of satisfaction through their care as measured from the caregiver’s point of view. Deyta used the Family Evaluation of Hospice Care (FEHC) survey results from over 1,200 partnering hospice agencies contained in its national, FEHC database with an evaluation period of January through December 2012. Deyta used the five key drivers of caregiver satisfaction as the basis of the Hospice Honors calculations.
“Hospice Honors defines a new standard of excellence in the patient/family experience for hospice agencies,” says Liz Silva, VP of Deyta. “Identifying these top-performing hospices is our way of recognizing organizations that have demonstrated high quality of care to both patients and caregivers. That positive family experience is a key driver of ongoing patient-focused care and overall agency success.”
Stein Hospice CEO Jan Bucholz says the award is a testament to her excellent staff. “This is an amazing award and reflects the incredible care each member of the Stein Hospice team provides to our patients and families every day,” she says.
