Aberdeen Village earns zero-deficiency rating in assisted living for focused infection control survey
Aberdeen Village had zero deficiencies on a focused infection control survey in assisted living August 4. The survey was conducted by the Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services (KDADS), the licensing agency for adult care homes including assisted living communities. Aberdeen Village is a PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America) senior living community.
Zero deficiencies means Aberdeen Village’s assisted living meets all the standards for infection control outlined by KDADS.
“Our employees go above and beyond every day in the care they provide to our residents,” said Tim Allin, executive director. “These survey results illustrate their dedication to infection control and our mission to provide quality senior services guided by Christian values.”
The focused infection control surveys hone in on an assisted living facility’s adherence to Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and KDADS 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.
The state of Kansas issues regulations for adult care homes 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. Assisted living communities are surveyed every 12 to 18 months for compliance with these regulations.
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.
