A Meridian Senior Living community, Parkrose Gardens of Fairfield Exclusive Memory Care in Fairfield, CA, is honored to receive a deficiency-free survey in December 2019 as administered by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).
“I am so proud of the staff and their hard work and commitment to our residents and their families,” stated Glen Cummins Regional Director of Operations of Meridian Senior Living. “Every one of our team members at Parkrose Gardens believes and follows our mission which is: ‘We enrich the lives of our residents, families and employees through extraordinary experiences … because Everyone Deserves A Great Life!’ With this mission and dedication to our resident’s quality of care, we are able to achieve a 100% deficiency-free survey.”
Senior living communities must meet or exceed all state and federal standards in order to accomplish a deficiency-free survey. This accomplishment is particularly difficult to achieve in California, due to its rigorous inspection process. A deficiency-free survey is uncommon to achieve and indicates a high level of service at a senior living community. In 2016-17, there were over 17,000 deficiencies among senior living facilities documented in CDPH’s data report.
In California, senior living communities are inspected periodically to ensure services and systems in place are compliant with federal and state laws and regulations. Over a course of multiple days, inspectors arrive unannounced to assess the facility. Surveyors determine compliance with regulations governing areas such as policies and procedures, resident care, quality of care and quality of life, medication administration, medical records, kitchen sanitation, staff competencies, dietary needs, equipment, safety, and overall wellness of the community. The senior living community is awarded a “deficiency-free” survey when all of these regulations are met.
At Parkrose Gardens of Fairfield, achieving an outstanding state survey means that seniors can anticipate the highest level of care in an optimal environment, which is important when selecting a senior living community.
