WEYMOUTH, MA -- Bane Care Management, an industry leader in skilled nursing care, is pleased to announce that Colonial Rehab and Nursing Center recently earned a deficiency-free survey from the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
Skilled nursing facilities participating in Medicare and Medicaid programs are inspected annually to evaluate services and renew state licensure. Unannounced, surveyors come in to interview, observe, and check records for several days. Surveyors determine compliance with regulations governing areas such as quality of care, residents’ rights, confidentiality and quality of service. It is an intense review of performance and compliance by the provider and is one quality indicator for individuals and families facing placement decisions. If each of the many applicable regulations is met, the nursing home is awarded a “deficiency-free” survey.
Deficiency-free surveys are incredibly difficult to achieve. According to data published by The American Health Care Association Long-Term Care Trend Tracker, just 7.3% of communities’ in Massachusetts earned a deficiency-free designation.
“I am so pleased and proud of the employees of Colonial on achieving this excellent survey,” said Kevin Morris, VP of Operations for Bane Care South. “This wonderful outcome is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, and their commitment of maintaining the highest quality of care for our patients and residents.”
