Wichita Presbyterian Manor earned a zero-deficiency health care survey from the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services following its annual inspection in mid-February.
“We are very proud of our staff’s achievement,” said Courtney Wolfe, executive director. “It is their commitment to our mission and residents that led to a deficiency-free community. We’ve created a foundation here that enables us to provide quality senior services guided by Christian values for our seniors every day.”
Each year, senior living communities are surveyed by their licensing agency for compliance of regulations established by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services. These regulations, which number in the hundreds, are designed to ensure a standard of care is met. By meeting this standard, senior living communities are able to renew their licenses and continue to provide care.
There are 17 major areas assessed, which include quality of care and physical environment. The surveyors look at every aspect of a resident’s life, from dietary choices, to dental care; from frequency of physician visits to ease of access to their mail.
“Being recognized as a deficiency-free community offers evidence of the staff’s compassion and desire to make Wichita Presbyterian Manor a place our residents are honored to call home,” Wolfe said.
The achievement by Wichita Presbyterian Manor places the senior living community in the top tier of survey performances in Kansas. For more information about Wichita Presbyterian Manor, contact Melody Dodge, marketing director, at 316-942-7456 or [email protected].
