Adams Heritage, a member of Adams Health Network, located in Monroeville, Indiana recently celebrated a deficiency free state survey.
To receive these honors, Adams Heritage has to be compliant with all the regulations under the long-term care requirements. These requirements are set from The Center of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS); thus, Adams Heritage is required to follow all the regulations from both the State and Federal government. During the survey process, residents, families, and associates are selected and interviewed regarding the quality of care, delivery of care, and satisfaction of the overall home. The results of these interviews were excellent!
Adams Heritage Administrator, Natasha Graves, stated, “The team at Adams Heritage deserves all of the credit, they show up every day, they care for the residents as if they were their family, and do their best to serve our population. I feel honored to work beside them and it is a privilege to care for the residents.”
In the long-term care industry, facilities are measured by their health inspections, quality measures, and staffing. And under each of those measurements, there are different categories in which points are assigned when a deficiency has occurred. The pandemic challenged many communities not only with new regulations but the constant changing environment, it’s critical to keep up with the newest guidance. The new regulations and ever-changing guidance present daily challenges to senior living communities. Graves stated, “We may be a small community, but this works to our advantage as we are committed to providing exceptional care in a homelike environment, where everyone is family.”
Adams Heritage has certainly demonstrated their commitment to quality by their deficiency free survey. Adams Heritage offers short-term rehab, outpatient rehab, and long-term care. As a member of Adams Health Network, Adams Heritage has the luxury of utilizing many of the organization’s resources including the Therapy Department who provide therapy to residents needing rehabilitation in-house as well as outpatients to the surrounding community.
