Carlyle Place Skilled Nursing Achieves Highest Levels in Annual SurveyBy Carlyle Place
Carlyle Place, Central Georgia’s first and only Life Plan Community, is please to announce the recent deficiency- free survey in Harrington House, the Skilled Nursing Center. The Georgia Department of Community Health conducted its annual survey on April 30-May 3, 2018.
The Department of Community Health inspects nursing homes every 9 to 15 months to assess compliance with federal and state standards of care such as adequacy of staffing, quality of care and safety measures of facilities. Surveys are unannounced and conducted by a team of health care professionals. A vast array of potential quality issues is covered, including a detailed review of records and interviews with the residents and families. A deficiency-free survey reflects substantial compliance with a multitude of regulations enacted by the government to ensure the highest level of resident well-being.
According to Dawn Dunbar, Director of Health Center Services, receiving this achievement reflects excellence and is the result of good teamwork. “This achievement is shared by dining, housekeeping, maintenance, and nursing,” said Dunbar. “It requires ongoing communication between departments which is one of our keys to success. Because everyone is always looking out for the well-being of our residents, their stay is of the highest quality possible. I’m proud of everyone on the team.”
“The staff at Carlyle Place goes beyond the call of duty, not only in quality of care but for quality of life. We are all proud of this achievement,” said Tom Rockenbach, Chief Administrative Officer for Carlyle Place.
