For the second straight year, OMNI Health Care’s 2018 Quality Forum hosted the Amazing Quest for Quality Care, a competition that focuses on the core value of fun and laughter while underscoring the importance of quality resident care.
The competition is the brainchild of Almonte Country Haven team members who organized the first event at the 2017 Quality Forum. The Amazing Quest for Quality Care is a take on the Amazing Race and is an outdoor interactive exercise where teams compete to perform tasks that align with various points of quality resident care.
This year the Country Terrace team organized the racecourse which saw team members from OMNI’s 18 long-term care homes compete in a series of challenges on Day 2 of the Quality Forum, which was held at Fern Resort Sept. 26-28.
Stations in this year’s challenge included guessing pureed food, a teamwork exercise to build birdhouses and a rock-climb. Each of the exercises was aimed at a specific point of quality in long-term care.
