Norfolk, NE: Heritage of Bel-Air . . . Celebrating Good Times

Heritage of Bel-Air is proud to announce that it has received a “deficiency-free” result on its recent annual Department of Public Health Certification Survey.

Long-term Care facilities are surveyed every year by a multi-disciplinary team. The rigorous survey is unannounced and conducted over several days. Inspectors cover almost 200 quality, safety and performance issues such as medication management, proper skin care, assessment of resident’s needs, respect for resident’s rights and dignity, food service, environment and administration.

With increasingly stringent regulations, achieving the deficiency-free rating can be challenging. The surveys, and the subsequent ratings, are a useful tool for prospective and current residents, their families, and health care practitioners to make informed choices about the quality of a long-term care facility.

In honor of this great accomplishment, the theme for the April team meeting was “Celebrate Good Times”. Sparkling cider was used to toast to this great accomplishment and the team was encourage to dance throughout the meeting. Balloons filled with cash were randomly thrown to thank the team for their “job well done”.

Excellent Teams:  We will select and develop team members who radiate warmth, compassion and respect while skillfully performing their duties.
