ANA Nursing Award in Rehab Goes to Craig Hospital for a Third Time

For the third time in 4 years, Craig Hospital has been the recipient of the American Nursing Association’s top honor in the category of rehabilitation. The Englewood, Colo-based hospital notes in a recent news release that it was among six hospitals to receive the NDNQI Award for Outstanding Nursing Quality.

The release states that the awards were presented February 5 at the American Nurses Association’s (ANA) Nursing Quality Conference in Phoenix, Ariz. According to the release, award winners also participated  in ANA’s National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators (NDNQI), a comprehensive database of nursing performance measures. The honorees were chosen from more than 2,000 hospitals that report results to NDNQI. Researchers then measured their performance against other NDNQI hospitals regionally, statewide, and nationwide.

Craig Hospital, a specialty rehabilitation and research center for spinal cord injury (SCI) and traumatic brain injury (TBI), emphasizes that the improvement of quality of nursing services that directly impact patient outcomes is a key force ingrained in its operations.
