Mechanicsville Specialty Care earns highest rating
(November 16, 2016 – Mechanicsville, Iowa) Mechanicsville Specialty Care has received a “Deficiency Free” result on its November 2016 annual survey by the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals.
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” survey is very prestigious. It means Mechanicsville Specialty Care meets or exceeds all state and federal standards.
“Our entire facility, including residents, staff, families and volunteers work together as a team to make Mechanicsville Specialty Care a safe and comfortable living community. Our goal is to help people with life’s health transitions and we think we do a great job of that,” says Administrator Tina Wendt.
