Arkansas City PMMA earns zero deficiencies on assisted living survey

Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor had zero deficiencies on its annual assisted living licensing survey conducted by the Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services (KDADS).

“Achieving zero deficiencies on an annual survey is a tremendous accomplishment,” said Sarah Griggs, executive director. “I am so proud of this team’s hard work and dedication to our mission to provide quality senior services guided by Christian values. It is our staff’s commitment to our mission and residents that led to a deficiency-free community.”

Senior living communities are surveyed regularly by their licensing agency for compliance of regulations established to ensure a standard of care is met. These regulations, which number in the hundreds, are designed to ensure resident health and safety. By meeting this standard, senior living communities are able to renew their licenses and continue to provide care. Surveys are conducted on average every 18 months.

The surveyors look at every aspect of a resident’s life, from dietary choices, to dental care; from frequency of physician visits to ease of access to their mail.

“Being recognized as a deficiency-free community demonstrates our staff’s compassion and desire to make Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor a place our residents are honored to call home,” Griggs said.

The achievement by Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor places the senior living community in the top tier of survey performances in Kansas. For more information about Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor, contact Whitley Stokes, marketing and sales counselor, at 620-442-8700 or
