Windsor Care Centers Participate in 13th Annual Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week

December 18, 2017 - Los Angeles, CA – Windsor skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers throughout California and Arizona announced today their participation in Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week (CCEW). Developed by the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics and the Health Care Compliance Association, CCEW provides the opportunity to roll-out new and updated compliance and ethics programs and policies, and reinforces employees’ compliance and ethics obligations.

CCEW is an extension of Windsor care centers’ ongoing compliance and ethics program, headed by Marissa Kirby, its Compliance Director. Windsor centers maintain a code of conduct that all employees are expected to follow and encourage employees to behave according to the highest standards of ethics. As a part of its efforts, select Windsor centers participated in a scavenger hunt that reinforced the Compliance Program, distributed “Make Good Choices” bracelets to team members, posted inspirational quotes and shared compliance and ethics tips each day.

“We were excited to have the facilities participate in Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week,” says Kirby. “Our focus was to raise awareness among the facility team members and to celebrate the compliance and ethics values we all work every day to uphold.”
Windsor conducts compliance and ethics education upon hire, and annually, for all employees.

The first Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week was held on May 22-28, 2005. This year marks the 13th CCEW annual celebration. Since 2005, CCEW has been celebrated by companies more than 2,000 times.

Four Windsor Care Centers Ranked “Top Performing” by U.S. News & World Report

Los Angeles, CA – January 11, 2017 - Four Windsor skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers in California recently announced they were ranked as “Top Performing” in U.S. New & World Report’s 2017-2018 Nursing Home Finder. U.S. News & World Report publishes its ratings based on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”).

U.S. News & World Report began publishing online ratings of nursing homes in 2009 in their online Nursing Home Finder Tool. The tool reflects a snapshot of the star ratings posted on Nursing Home Compare, the consumer website administered by CMS. Nursing homes are assigned an overall star rating between one and five stars by CMS, and specific ratings in each one of the following three areas:

  1. Health inspections (state conducted inspections of food preparation, infection control, medication management, residents’ rights and quality of life, and proper skin care)
  2. Nurse staffing (average number of nursing care minutes patients receive daily)
  3. Medical quality measures (self-reported and claims-based medical data for the latest four calendar quarters)

Four Windsor care centers were rated as “Best Nursing Homes” and “Top Performing,” by U.S. News & World Report’s Nursing Home Finder Tool in 2017-2018. This is the highest ranking available by U.S. News & World Report and is considered best-in-class.

The four best-in-class centers are:

  1. Windsor Manor Rehabilitation Center of Concord
  2. Windsor Gardens Rehabilitation Center of Salinas
  3. Windsor Gardens of San Diego
  4. Windsor Elmhaven Care Center

An additional nine Windsor care centers were ranked “Above Average.”

“We are extremely proud of our top performing buildings,” says Tim Lehner, Senior VP of Operations. “Day in and day out, the incredible staff at these care centers strive to provide compassionate care to the residents we are privileged serve. We are honored they are being recognized for their hard work.”
