Life Care Center of Hilliard, Florida, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility, recently achieved a deficiency-free state survey.
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, administration and the facility’s environment. Surveyors spend several days in the building reviewing paperwork, observing resident care and interviewing residents and associates.
“Our associates were very happy and appreciative,” said Tony Rimmer, executive director. “They love their residents, and these results show how much they care for them. They were happy more for their residents than themselves.”
The center received the results on Oct. 14, 2016.
“The team at Life Care Center of Hilliard, day in and day out, has provided the highest quality of care for the residents,” said Chris Green, vice president of parent company Life Care Centers of America’s Palmetto Region. “When it is done day after day for the right reasons, that work produces outstanding results for our residents and associates.”
