    Thank you for considering Crown Nursing & Rehabilitation Center as a candidate for your loved one. We often ask ourselves the question, ‘What is it that makes Crown special?’ Our customers have consistently identified our commitment to quality and compassion as our strongest traits. As a leader in the post-acute care market, we believe it is our mission to offer cutting-edge care and services to all residents within our immediate community regardless of insurance coverage. Our commitment to excellence is best demonstrated by the following guiding principles for measuring performance: Clinical Expertise: We believe that excellence begins with effective leadership.  Our Rehabilitation staff is lead by Dr. Swarna Shah, a board-certified Physiatrist committed to getting residents back on their feet & back home quickly & safely;  We have recently upgraded our Wound Management Program, lead by Vascular Surgeon Dr. William Lois, whose aggressive interventions have reduced the risk of infections and significantly improve healing rates;  We heard the cries of discharge planners at local hospitals and answered the call to develop a Bariatric Program in Brooklyn. We have the proper equipment, clinicians and compassion to make the Bariatric program a recognizable success.  Our End-of-Life Care Program includes Hospice / Palliative care designed to deliver compassionate and sensitive care by specially trained staff. Our aim is to keep residents comfortable and pain free while providing end-of-life care. More than 100 caregivers have received extensive palliative care training.  Our Pain Management program starts on admission, and continues throughout each resident’s stay, to ensure the early detection and treatment of pain.  On-site Intravenous (IV) Therapy and IV antibiotics improves treatment response times and prevents unnecessary re-hospitalizations.  We have recently added a full-time Nurse Practitioner program at Crown to improve on-site coverage for medical decision-making. Continuing Education: Crown’s commitment to excellence is grounded in a learning culture. We recently completed a $400,000 grant from the NYSDOH Dementia Grant Program to conduct a cutting-edge culture change study that analyzed the impact of training on the resident-caregiver relationship. A ‘How To’ manual for developing successful dementia care programs in LTC facilities will be published next month with our partners, the Alzheimer’s Association [NYC] & the Polisher Research Institute [PA]. An effective partnership with SEIU Local 1199 has developed numerous successes, including a nationally-recognized Worker Safety Project [‘03], Geriatric Training Programs [‘04], Palliative Care Training Programs [‘05 & ‘06] and our most recent project funded by the QCOC to implement a wireless Electronic Medical Record [‘07]. Always on the lookout for cutting-edge information to improve resident care, Crown currently participates in the AHCA Quality First program and the IPRO Nursing Home Quality Initiative. We recently added ‘Wound Vac’ therapy to our Wound Care Program. Leadership: Our commitment to delivering quality care is a reflection of our committed leaders. Sally Schnabel, RN, LNHA, is the owner & former Administrator, whose compassion and patient care focus was defined by her many years as a hands-on nurse. Jacob Dimant, MD, is nationally recognized geriatrician who led the development of clinical standards for AMDA while serving as Crown’s Medical Director. David Fielding, our current administrator, has more than 25 years of experience in LTC and served as the Director of the NYS Department of Health LTC Program in NYC during the 1990’s. Crown is recognized within our community for our achievements in providing excellent care to our residents and educating our community about health care issues as it relates to Rehabilitation services, disease prevention and specialty geriatric care & services. We feel obligated to helping our partners in care, such as you
