SACRAMENTO, Calif. (PRWEB) January 23, 2020
The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has administered its rigorous inspection in 2019 and deemed Legacy Oaks of Sacramento, a Meridian Senior Living assisted living and memory care community, deficiency-free.
“We are honored to recognize the outstanding staff and their effort towards improving health care quality and patient care for residents at Legacy Oaks of Sacramento,” said Glen Cummins Regional Director of Operations of Meridian Senior Living. “Their commitment to quality of care reflects their dedication to enrich the residents’ lives by virtue of our WOW! culture. At our core we believe; ‘Everyone deserves a great life.’"
The state of California's inspection for deficiencies is a thorough and lengthy process. In order for an assisted living community to achieve a deficiency-free survey, all services provided at the facility must meet or exceed all state and federal standards. Over 17,000 deficiencies were documented among senior living communities, according to CDPH’s 2016-17 data report (most current available). Receiving a 100% deficiency free status is uncommon in CA and reflects a high standard of service at the assisted living community.
The CDPH inspects assisted living communities periodically to evaluate their services and systems in place and oversee fulfilment with federal and state laws and regulations. Surveyors arrive unannounced to assess the facility and determine compliance with regulations governing areas such as policies and procedures, staff competencies, medication administration, medical records, resident care, quality of care and quality of life, kitchen sanitation, dietary needs, equipment, safety, and overall wellness of the community. The assisted living community is awarded a “deficiency-free” survey when all of these regulations are met.
Receiving a deficiency-free state survey means that residents at Legacy Oaks of Sacramento can expect the highest level of care in a secure environment, which is key when families are selecting a senior living community for their loved one.
