Emerald Oaks Independent and Assisted Living Meets State Guidelines

October 12, 2017
Emmetsburg News

Inspectors from the Department of Inspections and Appeals arrived at Emerald Oaks for their inspection. The inspection is a process of observing cares, reviewing charts, visiting with staff and tenants and looking at policies and procedures to ensure that quality of care is being provided to those individuals that reside within the facility. This process is one that determines if the facility is in compliance with over 500+ citable regulations that govern the care residents receive. The annual inspection also evaluates the environment, the structure of the facility, and paper compliance required by the Medicare/Medicaid programs.

"Many people do not understand the strict guidelines that we follow. The regulations are viewed as being the minimum standards. ABCM Corporation provides our facility and sister facilities with the knowledge, policies, procedures, systems and support to excel well above the minimum standards of care." Stated, Tammy Shimon, Administrator.

Since opening in 2003, Emerald Oaks Independent and Assisted Living has met the state guidelines. Flawless surveys are known as a deficiency free survey by The Department of Inspections and Appeals Health Facilities Division. Surveyors felt areas reviewed were compliant with the minimum standards set forth by the state regulation.

"Meeting state guidelines is a great honor for our staff and reflects the quality of staff that is employed here. Our team of dedicated employees will continue to excel in providing quality care in a manner that enriches the lives of the people who live here. It is an honor and privilege to be a part of this team at Emerald Oaks and ABCM Corporation", Tammy Shimon, Administrator adds.
