On New Year’s Eve 2016, Judy Hastings, 77, was just finishing up her job assisting Mike Davis, an Elvis Presley tribute artist, at the Dearborn County Country Club. The show had ended, and Hastings headed out to her car to load up Davis’ wardrobe and props when she came back inside clutching at her head. Friends saw her collapse to the floor in pain and called 911. She was rushed to the Dearborn County Hospital near her home in Aurora, Indiana.
When she arrived, she was comatose and required a breathing machine. Hastings was immediately transferred to University of Cincinnati (UC) Medical Center’s Neurocritical Care Unit where further testing revealed that the cause of her brain bleed was a ruptured arteriovenous malformation, or AVM. An AVM is a tangle of abnormal blood vessels connecting arteries and veins in the brain. Though it only occurs in one percent of the population, AVMs can cause weakened blood vessels to burst and bleed into the brain.
Hastings underwent emergent brain surgery to stop the bleeding and relieve the pressure on her brain. While the surgery was successful, Hastings would be in and out of the Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit (NSICU) at UC Medical Center for nine weeks, much of that time in a coma.
Hastings eventually left UC’s NSICU in February, spent a short time at the Drake Center and then received care at Waters Nursing Home in Rising Sun, Indiana, near the Hastings’ home. Her husband Rodney says that the Waters home was really key in helping Judy get back to a normal life. Now, she is back at home and starting to get back into regular routines, seeing friends and family who were at her side throughout those nine long weeks.

Rising Sun, IN – The Waters of Rising Sun has been recognized as a 2017 recipient of the Bronze – Commitment to Quality Award for its dedication to improving the lives of residents through quality care. The distinction is one of three progressive award levels through the National Quality Award Program, presented by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL), the leading association for long term and post-acute care. The program honors association members across the nation that have demonstrated their commitment to improving quality of care for seniors and persons with disabilities.
“It’s an honor to be recognized for our commitment to delivering quality care,” said Andrew Grubb, Administrator of The Waters of Rising Sun “Going through the process of achieving the Bronze award has made our organization stronger.”
The National Quality Award Program, which AHCA/NCAL established in 1996, is based on the core values and criteria of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program, which is also the foundation of the metric-based AHCA/NCAL Quality Initiative. The Baldrige program helps organizations in different business sectors improve and achieve performance excellence.
The Award Program has three levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Providers begin the quality improvement process at the Bronze level, where they develop an organizational profile with essential performance elements such as vision, mission statement, and key strengths and challenges. Bronze applicants must also demonstrate their ability to implement a performance improvement system. Trained Examiners review each Bronze application to determine if the center has met the demands of the criteria. As a recipient of the Bronze - Commitment to Quality Award, The Waters of Rising Sun may now move forward in developing approaches and achieving performance levels that meet the Silver - Achievement in Quality Award criteria.
“I commend The Waters of Rising Sun for embarking on the journey to quality improvement,” said the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Board of Overseers Chair Alana Wolfe. “I encourage The Waters of Rising Sun to continue to build on the strong foundation it has created.”
The awards will be presented during AHCA/NCAL’s 68th Annual Convention and Exposition in Las Vegas, Nevada, October 15-18, 2017
