Eldora Specialty Care Passes State Inspection with Zero Deficiencies

congratulations(May 30, 2018) Eldora Specialty Care is pleased to announce it has received a “Deficiency Free” result on its annual survey in May 2018 by the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals. There are 412 nursing facilities in Iowa. Generally, only 5 percent are found to be deficiency-free.

The annual survey, which is conducted over several days, covers over 500 quality, safety and performance issues such as medication management, proper skin care, assessment of resident’s needs, respect for residents rights and dignity, food service, environment and administration. The complete evaluation includes a tour of the facility, review of residents’ clinical records, and interviews with residents and family members about life and the care they are receiving.

With the increase in regulations, achieving the distinction of a “deficiency-free” rating is very prestigious. These surveys, and their subsequent ratings, are a useful tool for current and prospective residents, their families, and health care practitioners to make informed choices about the quality of a long-term care facility.

“At Eldora Specialty Care resident health, safety and comfort are our top priorities,” says Administrator Susan Eichmeier. “Each staff member is dedicated to our quality care goals and they all work hard to provide a great home for our residents.”
