    Fairmount Home held a very special launch event June 18 to mark the home's Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario (RNAO) Best Practice Spotlight Organization (BPSO) pre-designation.

    Frontenac County Deputy Warden Ron Vandewal hosted MPP Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston MPP John Jordan, Frontenac County Councillors, and many Fairmount residents and staff. A great time was had by all. Thank you all who attended and participated.
    Fairmount's Tammy McConnel, Deputy Warden Ron Vandewal, Fairmount Administrator Susan Brant, Fairmount Director of Care Emily Shoniker, Fairmount Resident Alison Ahara, Fairmount's Rebecca McEwen, MPP John Jordan, and Fairmount's Anna Campbell cut the ribbon on Fairmount's RNAO BPSO effort, June 18.

    “It’s a great honour for us to be selected as a BPSO pre-designate,” says Rebecca McEwen, Attending Nurse Practitioner at Fairmount and the home’s BPSO lead. “The hard work and dedication that goes into achieving BPSO designation is an important example of how the people who work with Fairmount consistently exceed the professional standards for resident care and administration in long-term care.”

    John Jordan, MPP Lanark, Frontenac-Kingston, addresses the crowd at the June 18 celebration at Fairmount Home.

    BPSO pre-designation is an enduring professional partnership between Fairmount Home and the RNAO. It’s all about independent peer review and ensuring that Fairmount Home’s nursing staff continue to achieve the highest level of state-of-the-art care for residents. It’s just the beginning of a long BPSO journey for Fairmount. When full BPSO designation is achieved, it will signal that Fairmount exceeds professional standards for resident care. It’s independent confirmation that Fairmount nursing professionals are professional leaders among long-term care homes in Ontario.

    Janet Chee, RNAO Associate Director, LTC Best Practice Program, addresses attendees in a video submission, June 18.
    BPSO is an internationally respected knowledge strategy to optimize health outcomes at the individual, organizational, and health system levels. The BPSO program gives Fairmount the opportunity to formally partner with the RNAO to achieve prestigious BPSO designation. It will take at least three years of rigorous work for Fairmount nursing professionals to meet the specific deliverables required to earn full BPSO designation.


    Among those deliverables for Fairmount are fulfilling best-practice requirements in three main areas: Person and Family Centred Care, Transitions in Care and Services, and Assessment and Management of Pressure Injuries for the Interprofessional Team.

    Tammy McConnel, Rebecca McEwen, Shaila Aranha (RNAO LTC Best Practice Implementation Coach), Emily Shoniker, Anna Campbell, prepare to cut the cake at the June 18 RNAO BPSO launch event at Fairmount Home. The BPSO program is proven to encourage evidence-based culture, improve resident experience, enrich staff satisfaction, and lower costs. The overarching aim of the partnership between Fairmount Home and RNAO is to support evidence-based health interventions to better support Fairmount residents and families.

    The objectives of the BPSO designation program are:

    • Establish dynamic, long-term partnerships that focus on making an impact on resident care through supporting evidence-based practice.
    • Demonstrate creative strategies for successfully implementing Best Practice Guidelines (BPGs) at Fairmount.
    • Establish and use effective approaches to evaluate implementation activities through structure, process, and outcome indicators.
    • Identify effective strategies for home-wide dissemination of BPG implementation and outcomes.
    • Support achievement of the Quadruple Aim and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
