Brookestone Acres Receives a Perfect Score on Health Certification Survey
Brookestone Acres is proud to announce that it has received a “deficiency-free” result on its annual Department of Public Health Certification Survey conducted in the Fall of 2016. Long-term Care facilities are surveyed every year by a multi-disciplinary team who arrive at the facility unannounced. The rigorous survey, which is conducted over several days, covers almost 200 quality, safety and performance issues such as medication management, proper skin care, assessment of resident’s needs, respect for residents rights and dignity, food service, environment and administration.
With increasingly stringent regulations, achieving the deficiency-free rating can be challenging. These surveys, and the subsequent ratings, are a useful tool for prospective and current residents, their families, and health care practitioners to make informed choices about the quality of a long-term care facility.
From its inception, Brookestone Acres was specifically designed to meet the needs of seniors seeking either short-term rehabilitation or skilled nursing services. Our residents and patients are served by staff trained to meet the unique and specialized needs of each individual.
