Tuesday, March 22, 2022 | 382 | 0

Bakersfield, Calif. (March 22, 2022) - Centre for Neuro Skills (CNS), a premier provider of treatment for traumatic and acquired brain injury, announced that its California facilities have been accredited for a period of three years by CARF International (formerly Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities). CARF International is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process and continuous improvement that centers on enhancing the lives of persons served. The accreditation extends through Dec. 31, 2024.

CARF-accredited organizations identify leadership that embraces the values of accountability and responsibility while demonstrating corporate social responsibility.

"What sets CNS apart from other rehabilitation facilities is our focus on brain injury and/or stroke, and individualized treatment for each patient, with the end goal of maximizing independence and quality of life," said David Harrington, president, and chief operating officer of CNS. "The CARF accreditation process is very rigorous, and the report truly captures the heart and culture of CNS - the dedication, inspiration, integrity, and innovation toward our patients, their families, our colleagues, and the field of rehabilitation. CNS is honored by the high praise in the surveyors' accreditation report."

During the rigorous on-site peer review process, CNS demonstrated to a team of surveyors its dedication and commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.

Areas of strength noted include:

  1. CNS has an extraordinary discharge process with a level of detail and coordination throughout, incorporating all disciplines, resources, and coordination of appointments and ongoing areas of need in all California locations.
  2. All locations in California quickly adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic by utilizing telehealth and developing protocols consistent with government guidelines, with the capacity for rapid testing on-site for both staff members and patients.
  3. CNS' facilities are well designed, spacious, and nicely furnished. At the clinics, patients are happy with the opportunities for rehabilitation, while those in the residential treatment enjoy desirable neighborhoods with easy access to shipping, restaurants, banking, and public transportation. All the apartments are in a gated, secure community, with access to a pool and fitness center.
  4. The Bakersfield location was praised for its compassion and support for its clinician teams, who have demonstrated incredible longevity, dedication, and compassion for the jobs that they do.
  5. Patients, family members, and referral sources report a very high level of satisfaction with the quality and intensity of services in both the residential and outpatient settings. Their comments include: "It's a good feeling in my heart when I refer to them," "I would choose CNS for myself," "They have changed my life," and "No one else could do all of this for our family."
