Successful Performance Improvement Project Results in Significant Reduction in Regulated Medical Waste Disposal Expense

Success Story IconWake Robin, a privately-owned nursing home in rural Vermont with less than 50 skilled residents, has been actively engaged with the New England QIN-QIO since 2014 to create and implement their Quality Assessment and Performance and Improvement Program (QAPI). Using these tools from their QAPI program, the leadership at Wake Robin initiated a Performance Improvement Project (PIP) and Root Cause Analysis to address challenges related to managing the disposal of Regulated Medical Waste.
