Meeting and exceeding the highest medical and residential accreditation standards

The Aurum medical services staff works closely with hospitals, physicians, and other healthcare providers, with patients and their families, and with managed care organizations and other payers to ensure that every patient receives appropriate. high-quality services in the post-acute setting. Those efforts are further guided by demanding public and private standards-setting bodies such as JCAHO, as well as those governing standards for clinical/medical programs and retirement/assisted living communities. In addition to our adherence to Federal, state, and industry council mandates, Aurum regularly polls residents to determine their level of satisfaction and determine where even more progress can be made. Annual resident surveys, as well as surveys completed upon patient discharge from Aurum facilities, help compile the coordinates used by Aurum management to guide our services and programs toward our goal of continuous improvement.
