State Health Department Says 17 Nursing Homes Had Deficiency-Free Annual Surveys In Second Quarter

INDIANAPOLIS-Seventeen Indiana comprehensive-care nursing homes had zero deficiencies in their annual surveys conducted from April through June 2009, state health officials announced today.


A total of 141 nursing homes in Indiana had their annual surveys during this period.


"The management and staff of these facilities are commended for their performance on what is a challenging survey process," said Terry Whitson, assistant commissioner for Health Care Regulatory Services at the Indiana State Department of Health.


"To achieve quality health care, a facility must have a well planned and executed system.  Having zero deficiencies means the facility has paid close attention to quality health care components such as assessment, care planning, and care coordination.


For each annual survey of a long-term care facility, a team of three or four professional surveyors performs detailed inspections that last from four days to two weeks. The team members are registered nurses or social workers.


The annual surveys cover these areas:

·                   residents' rights, including admission, transfer, and discharge;

·                   residents' behavior and facility practices (how the facility protects its residents);

·                   quality of life;

·                   resident assessment (how the facility determines the appropriate

                    care for each resident);

·                   quality of care;

·                   nursing services;

·                   physician services;

·                   dental services;

·                   infection control;

·                   physical environment; and

·                   administration.
