Pikeville, KY (March 7, 2018) – Parkview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, a 120-bed skilled nursing center, located in Pikeville, KY, received a deficiency-free survey in January 2018.

As a part of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), healthcare centers are measured and rated on a 5-star scale, helping families and caregivers compare providers more easily.

Amongst the CMS rating system, state surveyors also perform annual inspections to evaluate services and renew the care center’s state licensure. Surveyors enter the care center unannounced to interview and observe staff, check records and determine compliance with regulations. These regulations include quality of care, residents’ rights, and HIPAA governance.

This achievement is a tremendous representation of the commitment to quality of care and service that Parkview Nursing caregivers provide to their residents.

“In recent years, Parkview has become the premiere skilled nursing facility in our [rural] area. Our employees have exhibited an increased pride in their work and have conveyed that to the community,” stated Lanna Roberts, executive director.

Receiving a deficiency-free survey is a reflection of the care center’s operations passing each of the many applicable regulations, and is a tribute to the standards of care that all of their employees follow every day.

“We are continuing our best practices, increasing the use of Consulate University [for training], and monthly QAPI meetings with an increased focus on performance improvement projects,” continued Roberts.

Consulate Health Care’s employees strive every day to make a positive difference in the lives of those entrusted to their care. Achieving a deficiency-free survey shows a commitment to accountability and working towards safe clinical outcomes all while living out their mission of “Providing Service with Our Hearts and Hands”.

Parkview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center earned their deficiency-free survey on January 18, 2018.
