A deficiency-free survey indicates that the community met all of the state’s safety and quality standards. State officials evaluate senior living communities and skilled nursing centers following an extensive, unannounced survey, which is conducted on-site at the center for several days. Inspectors judge a community’s performance on safety measures, quality of care, medication management, hygiene, food service and more.
Less than 10 percent of communities nationwide earned a deficiency-free designation, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
“The Fairhaven staff is committed to providing top-quality, compassionate care and we are pleased to be recognized for those efforts,” said Lori Marsh, Administrator. “As an important healthcare partner in the community, we make it our mission to adopt new care standards that improve the lives of those we serve every day.”
