Avista Senior Living (“Avista”) is proud to announce that each of its five Arizona communities have received a deficiency-free survey from the Arizona Department of Health Services (“DHS”). DHS visits assisted living communities annually to conduct a thorough and unannounced inspection. The DHS survey includes a review of such things as resident quality of care, dietary services, fire safety compliance, medical record keeping procedures, employee files, social and recreational activities, and more. The survey process typically includes interviews with staff, residents, and resident family members.
Receiving a deficiency-free rating is the best possible outcome of the survey, and is an indicator of a community’s dedication to provide a quality environment for residents and staff.
According to Kristopher Woolley, Founder & CEO of Avista, “Achieving a deficiency-free survey from DHS is a big accomplishment for any assisted living community. The fact that we have been able to achieve this at all five of our Arizona locations is truly special. We are committed to working with our partners at DHS to create thriving communities that are compliant with industry regulations. We are very proud of our hard-working and caring teams, and we congratulate them on this achievement.”
