St. Joseph’s Villa,  Villa St. Gabriel Villa

We are very pleased to announce that our Case Mix Index (CMI) has increased at both our long- term care facilities. With this change in CMI comes an increase in funding from the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care for our nursing envelopes. This higher funding level has provided an opportunity to increase our PCA staffing at both facilities.

Based on the acuity of the home areas and an in-depth review of the staff mix in all areas and on all shifts, we are pleased to announce that St. Joseph’s Villa is hiring an additional 2.8 FTE Personal Care Assistants and Villa St. Gabriel Villa is hiring an additional 2.4 FTE Personal Care Assistants.

At St. Joseph’s Villa, the CMI increased from 0.9697 in the 2013/14 fiscal year to 0.9868 for the 2014/2015 fiscal year. Likewise, CMI for Villa St. Gabriel Villa increased from 0.9425 in the 2013/14 fiscal year to 0.9690 for the 2014/2015 fiscal year.

The Case Mix Index (CMI) is a classification system used to determine the allocation of financial resources to long-term care homes across the province. Last year our staff engaged in additional training to ensure that appropriate charting was being completed for all residents in their care. Thank you to all staff for their hard work and for their attention and detail to efficiently and accurately charting the appropriate care needs of our residents.
