Autumn Leaves Receives Deficiency-Free Survey Rating

Dallas, Texas (January 26, 2015) — Each year, the state inspects every Texas nursing home and prepares a survey report citing any deficiencies found by surveyors during inspections of the facilities.  Autumn Leaves is pleased to announce it was recently awarded a Deficiency-Free Rating by the Texas State Department of Health in its 2015 survey.

When scoring Autumn Leaves against standards for nursing care, quality of life, dietary services, physician services, rehabilitative services, infection control, pharmacy services, facility management, and observation of resident rights, not a single deficiency was cited.

“Naturally, we’re pleased with the survey results, but not surprised,” says John Robinson, Executive Director of Autumn Leaves.  “With roots dating back nearly 50 years in the Greater Dallas health care market, we enjoy an excellent reputation and the commitment of a long-tenured staff that does ‘whatever it takes’ to assure happy and thriving residents, family, and staff.  I’m proud of our team and glad they have been recognized for their efforts.”

By other quality measures, Autumn Leaves has also scored top ratings.  It holds a 5-Star Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Rating, based on criteria such as health inspections, staffing, and physical and clinical quality measures.

According to Robinson, “Only about 10% of communities earn a five-star Medicare rating, so I can honestly say that Autumn Leaves represents a top choice for seniors and families considering skilled nursing care for themselves or someone they love.”
