Life Care Center of Plymouth, Massachusetts, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility, 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.
“We’re extremely proud of the entire staff,” said Jon Bonfardeci, executive director. “We all work very hard to take care of our residents.”
The center received the results on Nov. 2, 2016.
“Life Care Center of Plymouth is successful because of the commitment not only from leadership but our front line staff,” said Kate O’Connor, regional vice president of parent company Life Care Centers of America’s Patriot Region. “They have worked so hard this year and all shared the same goal of outstanding quality care. They knew that would lead them to a successful survey, and it did.”
