The staff at Archbold Memorial Hospital’s Glenn-Mor Nursing Home was recently awarded perfect scores on a State of Georgia accreditation survey administered by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS).
The CMS survey lasted four days and was a detailed process that evaluated Glenn-Mor on quality of care, resident safety, nursing care and administration. The average number of healthcare deficiencies in Georgia nursing homes in 2015 was 2.8. Nationally nursing homes had 7 deficiencies. Glenn-Mor scored better than the average nursing home statewide and nationwide, achieving a perfect score of no deficiencies.
“We’re so proud of our Glenn-Mor staff,” said Natalie Slocumb, Glenn-Mor administrator. “Receiving a perfect score on this important survey shows the dedication they have to providing our residents with the top level of quality care and service.”
In addition, Glenn-Mor also recently received the American Health Care Association (AHCA) National Quality Award. This award recognizes the facility’s commitment to clinical performance and excellence for long term care services. Glenn-Mor was one of only 21 facilities in Georgia to receive this quality award.
“We applaud these members for their commitment to quality of life and service for those entrusted to their care,” said Tony Marshall, Georgia Health Care Association president and CEO.
“At Glenn-Mor, the care and safety of residents is the staff’s number one priority,” said Ladon Toole, Vice President for systems hospitals and long term care. “All of Thomas County can be proud to know they have access to one of the highest quality nursing homes in the state.”
