Lane Nursing Home achieved one of the highest designations of quality care and services: a deficiency-free rating in the 2018 survey by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, a news release said.
The survey was conducted over four days to ensure that the nursing home is meeting all requirements to maintain quality care, the release said. The visits are unannounced and a review of quality, safety and performance issues is conducted as well as a review of clinical documentation, administrative and clinical procedures, patient medication management, and employee personnel files. In addition, surveyors interview residents and clinicians and observe all operations of the facility, it added.
“Deficiency-free surveys are very rare in the nursing home industry,” said Patsy Lofstrom, R.N., unit director of Lane Nursing Home. “We are proud of the work we do and the care provided to our residents every day. I congratulate the entire team who contributed to this success.”
