Life Care Center of Yuma, Arizona, recently achieved a deficiency-free state survey.
To pass the state survey each year, nursing facilities must meet hundreds of criteria. These address not only nursing care and resident safety, but also patients’ rights, food services, administration and the facility’s environment. Surveyors spend several days in the building reviewing paperwork, observing resident care and interviewing residents and associates.
“I can’t begin to tell you how proud I am of my team,” said David Coles, executive director. “Even with all the new regulations that were included with this survey, we prepared well and felt ready when they walked through the doors. Mildrima Lim, director of nursing, did amazing in preparing for the new survey. Every staff member deserves kudos.”
The center received the results in mid-January 2018.
