Montefiore receives deficiency-free survey for the fourth year in a row
from the Ohio Department of Health
(April 3, 2014 – Beachwood, OH) For the fourth year in a row, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) rated Montefiore as “deficiency-free” in health services after a team of five surveyors from the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) examined the care we have been providing over the past year. The rigors of this review included observing medication pass, treatments, rehab, kitchen operations, meal service, housekeeping, maintenance, social services, human resources, dietician services, staff development, Nurse Aide Training Program, and activities as well as speaking with staff, residents and family members.
In addition, the surveyors examined medical records and other documentation required by the long term care regulations. They scrutinized our entire facility including all our clinical and operational systems from stem to stern under a survey process called QIS (Quality Indicator Survey). These annual inspections are conducted to ensure compliance with Medicare and Medicaid requirements.
“We are thrilled and most proud to announce that the survey was deficiency free for a fourth year in a row, for Montefiore and our Nurse Aide Training Program,” exclaimed Lauren B. Rock, Montefiore President and CEO, adding, “This is a wonderful achievement. It reflects our team’s continued hard work and a disciplined focus on outcomes and continuous improvement. We are on a clear path to excellence. Staying true to our values of Teamwork, Excellence, Dedication, Respect, Integrity, and Innovation, will help us stay this course.”
