Life Care Center of North Glendale, 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.
“Great teamwork and dedicated staff contributed to this outstanding outcome,” said Andrea Perkins, executive director. “During the exit conference with the Department of Health, they complemented the facility on the zero medication error rate, welcoming and friendly staff and outstanding dietary department.”
State surveyors completed their visit to Life Care Center of North Glendale on July 20, 2017.
