Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor received zero deficiencies, or a perfect score, on its focused infection control surveys for health care and assisted living conducted June 23 and July 9. The Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services conducts nursing home surveys in Kansas on behalf of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The state agency also sets licensing requirements and quality standards for adult care homes, which includes assisted living communities, and conducts adult care home surveys. The assisted living focused infection control survey is one of more than 160 state licensed adult care home and home plus inspections completed as ordered by the Kansas Legislature in early June. All adult care homes in Kansas will have a focused infection control survey by September 30th. The health care survey is one of more than 320 nursing home infection control surveys completed so far in Kansas at the direction of CMS. The federal agency, which oversees licensing and quality measures for nursing homes, announced in March that priority would be given to focused infection control surveys and required state surveyors to complete the surveys by July 31st.
