St Francis Home Completes Successful Survey
St. Francis Home has earned a “deficiency-free” survey from the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and Wisconsin Department of Health.
These unannounced annual surveys include a thorough evaluation of the entire facility, resident health and satisfaction, staffing requirements, personnel training, administrative procedures, dining services, infection prevention and resident rights.
The survey is a valuable evaluation tool for seniors, their families and healthcare professionals who refer older adults to skilled nursing homes.
“We’re very proud of the care and services provided by our staff,” according to Doug Trost, St. Francis Home president and chief executive officer. “This is St. Francis Home’s second deficiency-free survey in the last three years. This success is the result of everyone’s combined effort and concern for our residents. It takes all of us working together: every department, every position and every associate. I could not be more proud and feel very blessed to be part of this team of caregivers.”
Skilled nursing facilities are surveyed every nine to 15 months to ensure these healthcare providers are meeting stringent state and federal regulation and clinical standards.
“We are very intentional on offering a place to live that respects each resident as an individual,” Trost explains. “Our goal is to provide a caring Christian environment for the people we serve. Under the sponsorship of the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes, we strive to serve each resident with respect, dignity and a sense of individual worth.”
St. Francis Home is a 107-bed Medicare-certified skilled nursing facility specializing in long-term care for the elderly. It provides the latest in nursing home care, stressing a homelike atmosphere for residents and offering a special unit dedicated to the care of residents with Alzheimer’s disease.
