Evergreen Nursing Home in Alamosa, Colorado, recently completed its annual state survey with no deficiencies.
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.
“We are so pleased with the results of our recent survey,” said Kara Finger, executive director. “Our entire team works very hard to ensure a quality experience for each and every resident, and our annual survey validates their hard work by showing we meet or exceed all of the federal and state guidelines.”
Ramona Dutton, RN and director of nursing, added, “We are so proud of our team of associates at Evergreen. Every department goes out of its way to help residents, families and visitors have a quality experience during their stay with us.”
The surveyors completed their inspection on Feb. 8, 2018.
Evergreen Nursing Home is rated five stars by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (the top score) and one of only 21 facilities (10 percent) in Colorado to have this top rating.
