Summer is finally here, which means more time outdoors for the residents at North Shore Care Center. The elders have been spending time on the patios whenever possible for history and trivia sessions, games, making smores, and tending the gardens.
July 2nd marked the halfway point of the year - Day 183 of 2014 - hard to believe! July is also National Picnic Month and Family Reunion Month, which means more families visiting for the rest of the summer. Everyone looks forward to another picnic on the 4th of July with families and friends.
Cook County North Shore Hospital is now listed on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Hospital Compare webpage. This webpage reports various process of care measures including heart attack or chest pain process of care measures, pneumonia process of care measures, and heart failure process of care measures. In addition, mortality rates and hospital readmission rates are also included on the webpage. Often the number of cases are too small to reliably tell how well the hospital is performing. The Hospital continues to focus on processes to achieve compliance with the process of care measures.
