Life Care Center of Lawrenceville, Georgia, recently achieved a deficiency-free state survey.
The center found out about the results of its December 2017 survey in mid-February.
“The deficiency-free survey demonstrated the dedication, compassion and commitment to patient-centered care here at Life Care Center of Lawrenceville,” said Alonza Lewis, executive director. “Achieving a deficiency-free survey is an accomplishment that is highly desired but rarely obtained.”
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, administration and the facility’s environment. Surveyors spend several days in the building reviewing paperwork, observing resident care and interviewing residents and associates.
“After I started working as the director of nursing, every morning we prayed that God’s will be done in our lives and in the lives of those we cared for, that God would put His ‘super’ in our ‘natural’ every day,” said Troy Taylor. “I’m truly grateful to have had the opportunity to lead this extraordinary nursing team through a survey without a deficiency, and I look forward to an even greater future for Life Care Center of Lawrenceville.”
