Aberdeen Village earns another zero-deficiency rating for focused infection control survey

Aberdeen Village earned a second zero-deficiency survey for a focused infection control survey conducted in its health care center on behalf of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in January. Aberdeen Village is a PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America) senior living community.

The campus received zero deficiencies during focused infection control surveys in the health care center in June 2020 and in the assisted living center in August 2020.

The focused infection control surveys hone in on a nursing facility’s adherence to Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and CMS guidance for infection control practices to prevent disease at the community. Communities are assessed on staff and resident education on hand hygiene and coughing/sneezing etiquette, cleaning, screening of employees and residents, effective transmission-based precautions, proper use/discarding of personal protective equipment and signage at entrances and resident rooms. It also examines the facility’s policies and emergency preparedness related to a pandemic or outbreak.

Senior living communities are surveyed annually by their licensing agency for compliance of regulations established by the Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) and CMS. These regulations are designed to ensure a standard of care is met. By meeting this standard, senior living communities are able to renew their licenses and continue to provide care. Zero deficiencies means Aberdeen Village met all the standards for infection control in the community’s health care neighborhoods.

“Every day I see our employees go above and beyond in the care they provide,” said Tim Allin, executive director. “To receive two zero deficiency infection control surveys in health care and another in assisted living in the midst of a pandemic shows how committed our employees are to protecting the health and safety of our residents. They really do provide quality senior care and services based on Christian values every single day.”

Aberdeen Village is a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), or life plan community, offering independent living, assisted living, memory care, long-term health care and short-term rehabilitation.
