The deficiency –free rating as a result of the State’s rigorous examination is one of the top indicators of excellence for rest home facilities. The state surveyed Dodge Park Rest Home in mid-August for compliance with nursing care standards. They evaluated our facility for quality, safety, administration effectiveness, cleanliness, nursing care, activity programs, protection of resident rights, and food services.
During the last three years, the department found only 17 out of 431 nursing homes deficiency-free.
With increasingly stringent regulations, achieving the deficiency-free rating is exceedingly difficult. 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.
It takes an entire team effort to achieve this distinguished rating. We have our staff in direct care, nursing, activities, the offices, maintenance, housekeeping, dietary, and our professional medical staff, to thank for such outstanding results, year after year. We are very proud of our staff’s accomplishment.
