“I am so proud of our care staff. This is a testament to their loving, compassionate and professional service to our residents."
West Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 21, 2011
Daystar Retirement Village, a Seattle Retirement Community, is pleased to announce today that after the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) Annual Inspection, its Assisted Living program received no citations.
Daystar Retirement Village’s Resident Services department is directed by Anetta Townsend, LPN and Glenda Specht, RN.
Wendy A. McGee, CEO of The Powell Companies says “I am so proud of our care staff. This is a testament to their loving, compassionate and professional service to our residents. A citation-free survey does not necessarily mean perfection, but it is a remarkable achievement — and tells us, ‘You’re on the right path. Job well done.’ Hearing that from DSHS makes us extremely happy and encourages us to continue providing care above and beyond the state requirements.”
The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) Annual Survey is an unannounced inspection of licensed boarding homes. The survey measures over 150 regulatory standards that assisted living communities must meet at all times and evaluates everything from nursing services to activities, dietary department, social services, administration, medical records, admissions and much more. The inspectors thoroughly assess our employees on the job, talk with the residents and review documents.
