Fairbury, NE: Heritage Care Center Celebrates THREE Years Deficiency-Free!

LogoIn the most recent survey administered by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, Heritage Care Center was rated deficiency-free for the THIRD straight year in a row! Heritage Care Center is proud to announce that it has received a “deficiency-free” result on its annual Department of Public Health Certification Survey recently conducted. Long-term Care facilities are surveyed every year by a multi-disciplinary team. Surveys are always unannounced. The rigorous survey, which is conducted over several days, cover 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 is exceedingly difficult. 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.
Heritage Care Center is able to offer superior clinical care in a nurturing environment. Our experienced team will care for you or your loved one in a welcoming, warm, and caring environment. With our leading edge clinical programs, fine dining, recreational activities and amenities, residents can attain maximum recovery potential. We are committed to delivering patient care with first-rate customer service.

Heritage Care Center is one of 30 facilities owned and/or managed by Vetter Health Services (VHS) in Elkhorn, Nebraska. The care center’s administrator and staff develop plans to continuously improve their services and facility with the support from the VHS network. Operating decisions are made locally to assure that Heritage Care Center remains responsive to the needs of its residents and community.
