The Advancing Excellence Campaign started as a two-year national campaign to address quality in nursing homes. A kickoff summit meeting was held September 29, 2006. The campaign stakeholders represent consumers, providers, caregivers, health care practitioners and professionals, medical and quality improvement experts and government agencies.

The Kansas Ombudsman program supports the initiative as a strategy to promote improvements in eight areas:

  • Untreated pain in residents who are in facilities for short stays
  • Untreated pain in residents who are in facilities for long stays
  • Restraints
  • Pressure Sores
  • Setting individualized quality improvement targets
  • Assessment of resident/family satisfaction
  • Staff turnover
  • Consistent assignment of staff
