A Certification Survey is conducted onsite on a yearly basis to determine whether a facility meets the Medicare and Medicaid quality and performance standards. The survey team observes resident care, staff/resident interaction, and environment; they also review medical records and other documentation. Using established protocols, the team interviews a sample of residents and family members about their life within the nursing home, and interviews caregivers and administrative staff.
“This is a tremendous accomplishment in an environment of heightened surveillance,” said Nick Lanza, senior vice president in charge of Operations for Elant, Inc. “This survey validates the commitment to excellence of the Elant organization.”
