Sterling Presbyterian Manor earned a zero-deficiency survey for the second consecutive time from the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services following its annual inspection July 25, 2018.
“We are very proud of our staff’s achievement and the wonderful residents that call our campus home,” said Michael Rajewski, executive director. “Our mission is to provide quality senior services guided by Christian values. It is our teams’ commitment to our mission and to our residents that has led us to remain a deficiency-free community.”
Each year, senior living communities are surveyed by their licensing agency for compliance of regulations established by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services. These regulations, which number in the hundreds, are designed to ensure a standard of care is met. By meeting this standard, senior living communities are able to renew their licenses and continue to provide care. It is rare for a senior living community to achieve a deficiency free designation.
There are 17 major areas assessed, which include quality of care and physical environment. The surveyors look at every aspect of a resident’s life, from dietary choices, to dental care; from frequency of physician visits to ease of access to their mail.
“Being recognized as a deficiency-free community offers evidence of the awesome staff’s compassion and desire to make Sterling Presbyterian Manor a place our residents are honored to call home,” Rajewski said.
The achievement by Sterling Presbyterian Manor places the retirement community in the top tier of survey performances in Kansas. For more information about Sterling Presbyterian Manor, contact Cindy Moore, Administrative Services Director, at 620-278-3651 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
