The deficiency-free rating is a reflection of our commitment to the care we provide.
Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) November 28, 2012
Abbey Delray South senior living community in Delray Beach has achieved a deficiency-free score. For the fourth year in a row, the community received zero citations for quality care, and earned a national 5-Star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
The Agency for Health Care Admission (AHCA) comes unannounced every year, and conducts annual surveys at health care centers throughout the state of Florida.
“The deficiency-free rating is a reflection of our commitment to the care we provide,” said David Randazzo, executive director for Abbey Delray South. “Our entire team at Abbey Delray South has been working diligently to exceed resident expectations. I’m proud that we’ve been recognized for our efforts.”
With more than 200 regulations to follow every day, there’s the potential to experience minor human errors, but the staff at Abbey Delray South proves that isn’t the case and continues to take admissions even during the survey window.
“We have a great staff at the Health Center and they work hard every day to make sure our residents are happy.” said Carolyn Bachonski, director of nursing for the Health Center.
Abbey Delray South’s Health Center offers Life Care, including independent living and skilled nursing. In addition to serving residents, the Health Center also accepts direct admissions from individuals in Delray Beach and the surrounding area.
