Hamlin, W.Va. – Meeting all state and federal regulations, Lincoln Nursing & Rehabilitation Center (N&RC) has received a deficiency-free state survey during their most recent inspection.
Like all health care facilities, such as hospitals, hospice care, rural clinics and other providers are inspected by the West Virginia Health Facility Licensure & Certification or contracted agencies.
“I’m incredibly proud of our team here,” said Matthew Tucker, Executive Director for Lincoln N&RC. “They work so hard and are committed to providing the best care for our community.”
All skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers must receive a state-survey inspection annually.
American Medical Facilities Management (AMFM) has had two other of their 16 statewide centers also receive deficiency-free inspections in the most recent survey cycle. Webster and Clarksburg Nursing & Rehabilitation Centers have also received deficiency-free inspections.
AMFM has also had three other previous state inspections that were deficiency-free since 2014. 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. “The teamwork and leadership at a deficiency-free center must be top-notch to meet the thousands of regulations required. I’m incredibly proud of our team at Lincoln.”
Lincoln N&RC is Four-Star Rated center from the Centers for Medicaid/Medicare Services’ Nursing Home Compare program, and is a 2015 National Bronze Quality Award recipient from the American Health Care Association/National Centers for Assisted Living.
