Cowen, W.Va. – Meeting all state and federal regulations, Webster Nursing & Rehabilitation Center (N&RC) has received a deficiency-free state survey during their most recent inspection. This the second deficiency-free inspection in a row that Webster N&RC has earned.
Like all health care facilities, such as hospitals, hospice care, rural clinics and other providers are inspected by the West Virginia Office of Health Facility Licensure & Certification or contracted agencies. All skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers must receive a state-survey inspection annually.
“The credit goes to the team working here,” said June Hutchinson, Executive Director for Webster N&RC. “They are committed to providing the best care for our residents and this community.”
Webster N&RC’s is the second American Medical Facilities Management (AMFM) center to receive a deficiency-free inspection in 2017. Fayette N&RC also received a deficiency-free survey earlier.
Since 2014, AMFM has also had a total of seven facilities receive state inspections that were deficiency-free. Currently, the average number of deficiencies in West Virginia is 8.9 citations and nationally is 7.2 citations.
“To be deficiency-free is an incredible achievement,” said Tammy Jo Painter, Vice President of Compliance for AMFM. “And to reach this milestone of care two years in a row is amazing, and I’m very proud and thankful for our team at Webster.”
Webster N&RC is also a 2015 Bronze National Quality Award recipient from the American Health Care Association/National Centers for Assisted Living, and is also a Five-Star Rated center from the Centers for Medicaid/Medicare Services’ Nursing Home Compare Program.
AMFM operates 16 SNFs throughout West Virginia. AMFM’s mission is “to exemplify excellence in quality care by providing an environment that enhances personal growth, individuality, dignity and respect.”
