Deficiency Free

We celebrate and take pride in receiving a deficiency-free health survey. Facilities are surveyed every year by a multi-disciplinary team from the Department of Health and Human Services. Surveys are always unannounced. The rigorous survey, which is conducted over several days, covers almost 200 quality, safety and performance issues such as medication management, proper skin care, assessment of resident’s needs, respect for residents rights and dignity, food service, environment and administration, to name only a few. With increasingly stringent regulations, achieving the deficiency-free rating maintaining compliance with both state and federal requirements can be challenging. These surveys, and the subsequent ratings, are a useful tool for prospective and current residents, their families, and health care practitioners to make informed choices about the quality of a long-term care facility.

Injury Free

Vetter Senior Living is deeply committed to the safety of our team members and residents. As part of our injury prevention efforts, we take time to recognize and celebrate with each Vetter Senior Living facility when each team member has worked “One Year — 24/7 Injury Free.” These celebrations include a special lunch served by the Vetter Health Services home office team. All team members are awarded pins for their personal commitment to keep themselves and their teammates free from injury. Vetter Senior Living recognizes that laboring for one year without injury is a significant achievement – it takes great teamwork and allows us to continue to provide the world-class resident care for which are facilities are known.
