The Stafford boutique retirement community has received its third back-to-back survey from the Oregon Department of Human Services (DHS). The unannounced inspection, which is conducted by DHS in accordance with strict guidelines administered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, examined resident quality of care and quality of life, dietary services, fire safety, and environmental services.

“This is a true testament to the unwavering commitment our staff has for the comfort and quality of care they provide our residents,” says Wendy Wood, Executive Director. “A single deficiency-free survey is a milestone for most assisted living programs. For us, three perfect surveys in a row is us living out our mission to enhance the life of every person we serve.”

The perfect inspection score is the best score an assisted living program can receive and is an achievement only a few assisted living providers in the state can claim. The survey process also included interviews with residents, residents’ family members and Stafford employees, and a record review of documentation.
