St. Joseph Manor Receives a Deficiency Free Survey Rating from Massachusetts Department of Public Health

St. Joseph Manor is proud to announce that is has received a deficiency-free survey rating on its annual Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Division of Health Care Quality Survey conducted from June 23rd through June 26th, 2014.

The deficiency-free rating is a result of the State’s rigorous examination which evaluates our facility for quality, safety, administration, cleanliness, nursing care, activity programming, protection of resident rights and food service. The examination included a tour of the facility, review of resident’s clinical records, interviews with residents and families and a review of nursing staff to resident ratios.

With increasingly stringent regulations, achieving the deficiency-free rating is exceedingly difficult. These surveys, and the subsequent ratings, are a useful tool for prospective and current residents, their families and health care practitioners, to make informed choices about the quality of a skilled nursing facility.

“It takes an interdisciplinary team effort to receive this coveted deficiency-free rating. We are extremely grateful for all of our staff’s hard work and dedication to our residents here at St. Joseph Manor,” commented, Christopher Kenney, CEO/Administrator. “Everyone from nursing, activities, administration, maintenance, housekeeping, dietary and our professional medical staff are responsible for these tremendous results.”

St. Joseph Manor was built on a mission of compassion and care. From our state-of-the art short-term rehab to our thoughtfully designed spiritual care program, we set the standard for quality care in greater Boston.   We work hard to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of each of our residents.
