Life Care Center of Lawrenceville, Georgia, recently achieved a deficiency-free state survey.

 

The center found out about the results of its 2018 survey on Nov. 29, 2018.

 

“The work we do here at Life Care Center of Lawrenceville is a true example of a team concept,” said Michael Gibson, interim executive director at the facility. “Our purpose is to provide outstanding quality care for our residents in a compassionate and caring manner. Our facility team is being recognized for the second year in a row with a deficiency free survey during our annual inspection. We are truly grateful, proud and humbled by that accomplishment.”

 

To pass the state survey each year, nursing facilities must meet hundreds of criteria. These address not only nursing care and resident safety, but also patients’ rights, food services and administration. Surveyors spend several days in the building reviewing paperwork, observing resident care and interviewing residents and associates.

 

“We were ecstatic!” said Marie Okubo, director of nursing at Life Care Center of Lawrenceville. “The staff was very happy. It goes to show all of the hard work we do throughout the year. Even the residents were out in the hallway waiting to hear the results of the survey. They were so excited!”
