[Garden City, KS, May 12, 2020] – A state health inspection is not typically cause for celebration; however, the team of professionals at Garden Valley Retirement Village have been anxiously awaiting their annual survey and are celebrating their excellent results!
Nursing homes (and skilled care facilities) must meet certain requirements set by Congress. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have entered into an agreement with State governments to complete routine health inspections and to investigate complaints about nursing home care. A quality ranking system has been developed by CMS to help provide insights for consumers that are searching for short or long-term care. Health inspections, as well as staffing, and quality measures, contribute to the overall rating of each facility.
Marc Riley, Executive Director for Garden Valley Retirement Village stated, “We have improved in our survey results each year. This is a direct result of the continued efforts and commitment to excellence by all of our staff and I am grateful to work with such a talented team.” Robert Jones, President and COO with Frontline Management stated, “Marc and the team of professionals at Garden Valley should feel very proud of themselves for this achievement.”
Michelle Deegan, director of clinical services at Frontline Management stated, “It will take continued focus to maintain these positive results, but I have a lot of confidence in this team and know that they are incredibly dedicated to quality improvement.” Today, the staff, residents and leadership team are enjoying the results of their hard work.
