The Vosswood Nursing Center, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility in Houston, recently earned a deficiency-free annual health survey for the second year in a row.
To pass the state health survey each year, nursing facilities must meet hundreds of criteria. The survey focuses on a wide variety of care areas in the facility, including nursing care, patients’ rights, safety, food services and administration. Surveyors spend several days in the building reviewing paperwork, observing resident care, and interviewing residents and associates.
The survey was completed on May 12.
“Though the survey result is but only one metric of our ongoing process to better care, we are proud to have that metric initiate from the positive experiences of the patients themselves,” said Mary Taylor, director of nursing. “At the end of the day, it is the care of the patients that is a direct reflection of the outcome of our survey process: the attention to the individual and the ability to meet whatever need may arise.”
Life Care operates or manages more than 200 skilled nursing, rehabilitation, Alzheimer's and senior living campuses in 27 states.Find a Location
