EAST ISLIP, NEW YORK (Nov. 30, 2022) – Momentum at South Bay for Rehabilitation and Nursing recently earned a bronze award for improving quality of care through vital signs monitoring technology. The East Islip, New York, facility won in the Quality category of the 2022 McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Awards, which focuses specifically on technology innovations in skilled nursing facilities.
Momentum captured the award for its use of the Vios Monitoring System with Remote Monitoring Services. The technology enables around-the-clock vital signs monitoring of post-acute cardiopulmonary residents. This real-time view into the resident’s condition allows the facility to treat residents more proactively and prevent hospitalizations with greater success.
“We’re always trying to find new technology that elevates our standard of care and provides residents with the highest quality rehabilitation experience,” said Joe Aplustille, administrator of Momentum. “It’s a big honor for our team to be recognized by McKnight’s for our efforts and the results we’ve seen improving the quality of care for residents.”
Since implementing the system, Momentum has raised their standard of care through:
- Avoiding hospital readmission for several residents because the care team was alerted early to changes in health
- Seamless monitoring of resident vital signs, even during rehabilitation sessions, to proactively adjust treatment as needed
- Using vital signs data to better understand the incremental health changes in a resident, which can impact care coordination and discharge
The Vios Monitoring System is a wireless, FDA-cleared patient monitoring platform designed to improve resident safety and outcomes through continuous vital signs monitoring. The platform’s Remote Monitoring Services offers 24/7/365 monitoring and alerts to support staff as they work to manage medical care and reduce rehospitalizations.
