RECALLING THE GOOD NEWS.

Inside the Nexus Children’s Hospital 2018 Annual Quality Report.

Nexus Health Systems’ Annual Quality Reports illustrate our commitment to patients and their families. From overall patient satisfaction scores and discharge disposition, to infection control data and brain injury rehabilitation outcomes, we outperform published national statistics across our Children’s Hospital, Specialty Hospital, and Neurorecovery Center.

Check out our highlighted data from Nexus Children’s Hospital:

At Nexus Children’s Hospital, we offer a Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine Program for children who are chronically ill, physically fragile, or traumatically injured. Our program provides care to children who require short-term tracheostomy/ventilator management, as well as those with long-term tracheostomy/ventilator dependencies who will return home.

Patients are placed on a portable ventilator and may receive therapies in one of our facility’s living or therapy areas. As our children improve, they may receive Bi-level Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP) or Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) as other forms of ventilation.

Wee-FIM statisticsNexus Children’s Hospital outperforms national averages for children with a traumatic brain injury. Our patients progressed 32% more when compared to published national Wee-FIM statistics. The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Continuum of Care Program is designed for any patient who has experienced a traumatic or acquired brain injury. As children progress through the stages of brain injury recovery, they may require a broad range of specialized services to meet their individual needs. As a result, many children will receive a combination of services provided in each of the following inpatient programs: Brain Injury Responsiveness, Brain Injury Rehabilitation, and Home and School Re-Entry.

Nexus Children’s Hospital prides itself on delivering exceptional care and support to our patients and their families. To develop quality initiatives and ensure needs are met, satisfaction surveys are conducted with each patient and his or her family. Scores are based on a 5-point rating scale.

Patient Discharge Statistics Where do our patients go? The majority of children discharge home. Other times, patients have to discharge to a hospital for a short term in the event they need follow up procedures or evaluation. Patients usually return once treatment is completed.

 As the leaders in pediatric medical services and rehabilitation, Nexus Children’s Hospital treats children with primary medical issues who may also have secondary behavioral problems. Working with patients from infancy to age 21 who may have been unsuccessful in traditional rehabilitation environments, our flexible admissions criteria allows us to treat a wide variety of diagnoses. At our pediatric facilities, you become part of our family as we’re mending minds.
