Birchwood Terrace Rehab & Healthcare located in Burlington, VT, is pleased to announce that for the second time in three years they have completed a “deficiency-free” survey from the State of Vermont Agency of Human Services.
A deficiency-free survey means that Birchwood Terrace met all of the state’s safety and quality standards. Nursing facilities are evaluated by state officials following an extensive, unannounced survey, which is conducted on-site at a center over several days. Inspectors judge a facility’s performance on safety measures, quality of care, medication management, hygiene, food service and much more.
Deficiency-free surveys are incredibly difficult to achieve. According to data published by the CMS in 2015, just 10.2 percent of nursing facilities nationwide earned a deficiency-free designation.
Alecia DiMario, Executive Director of Birchwood Terrace, commented on the dedication it takes to be “deficiency free” for the second time in three years, “Everyone at Birchwood Terrace works tirelessly to provide for residents the very best care year-round. Having received this designation on multiple occasions is an affirmation that we are succeeding and I, for one, couldn’t be more proud of the entire Birchwood Terrace team for always going above and beyond.”
Survey results and rankings from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) allow consumers to compare the health and safety inspection results of various nursing facilities. Full reports on the nursing and rehabilitation facilities can be found by searching here .
