Westview Health Care Center, a 103-bed short term rehabilitation and long term health care facility in Dayville recently received a deficiency-free inspection from the State of Connecticut Department of Public Health.
The Medicare and Medicaid Certification Survey, which occurs annually, evaluates nursing homes on many aspects of life in a nursing home. At all times, certified nursing homes must meet numerous regulatory standards designed to promote quality care and protect nursing home residents. These standards cover a wide range of topics which include proper management of medications, how the staff and residents interact, the care of residents and the processes used to give the care, the home environment, as well as, the safe storage and preparation of food.
In addition, inspectors review the residents' clinical records, interview some residents and family members about their life in the nursing home, and interview caregivers and administrative staff.
“The inspection comes on the heels of news that Westview was ranked as one of the Top-12 nursing homes in the country for four consecutive quarters by US News and World Report," commented Westview Administrator David T. Panteleakos. "A deficiency-free inspection is very difficult to attain and these results speak to the quantity and quality of Westview's health care professionals and their commitment to excellence."
Westview Resident Council President, Alma Brey remarks, "On behalf of the Resident Council and the residents of Westview, we are proud to live in such a happy, comfortable and secure environment where we feel we are part of a large family that has everyone's best interests in mind."
Westview adds their 2010 Deficiency Free inspection to a growing list of accomplishments that includes the most recent US News and World Report March announcement, Consumer Reports Top 10 Connecticut Nursing Facility rating, 2008 State of Connecticut Deficiency Free Medicare and Medicaid Inspection and Health Grades 5-Star Top Ranking.
