Local community earns deficiency-free survey, ranks among top senior living providers nationwide
Corvallis, Ore. - Prestige Care, an industry leader in senior living and skilled nursing and rehabilitation care, is pleased to announce that Prestige Senior Living West Hills in Corvallis, Oregon, recently earned a deficiency-free survey from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the State of Oregon Department of Human Services (DHS).
Communities that earn deficiency-free surveys successfully demonstrate that they meet and exceed state standards for safety and quality care. Senior living communities and skilled nursing centers are evaluated by state officials following an extensive, unannounced survey, which is conducted on-site over several days. Inspectors judge a community’s performance on safety measures in 15 categories that cover quality of care, medication management, hygiene, food service and more.
Deficiency-free surveys are exceedingly rare, and place Prestige Senior Living West Hills among the top-performing communities nationwide.
“Safety is our highest priority, so we work hard to ensure the highest standards of care for our residents,” said Amanda Gray, executive director at Prestige Senior Living West Hills. “We are proud to achieve this deficiency-free survey, which reinforces the high-quality care our staff provide every day.”
Survey results and community ratings from the CMS and Oregon DHS inform consumers about the health and safety inspection results of varying communities and allow them to track the improvements a particular community has made over time.
