Life Care Center of Carrollton, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility, recently earned a state survey with no deficiencies.
“It was an overwhelming sense of great accomplishment for our entire team,” said Lynn Hayes, executive director at the facility. “The success of our team involved many hours of focus and continued training. The surveyors commented on how happy the residents, their families and our associates are. Everyone at Life Care Center of Carrollton is a family, and we all strive to provide quality care for our loved ones.”
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 and administration. Surveyors spend several days in the building reviewing paperwork, observing resident care and interviewing residents and associates.
“The award of a deficiency-free survey is like no other,” explained the facility’s director of nursing, Paula Turner. “My nursing team has been totally focused on providing the best care possible for our residents while maintaining a homelike atmosphere. All of the staff remained focused throughout the four days of survey and did what we do each and every day – offer compassion and quality care to our residents. But after the announcement, we did spend some time high-fiving and whooping and hollering!”
The surveyors completed their most recent inspection of the facility in December 2018.
