Pediatric Center Recognized With Third Consecutive Deficiency-Free Survey
Story Number is : 011418121
Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center

Once again, the Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center was recognized for its delivery of exceptional patient care with a deficiency-free rating from the New York State Department of Health (DOH) during their annual, unannounced Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Long Term Care Survey. We continue to receive five stars in the CMS Quality Rating System.

This is our eighth deficiency-free survey since 2004 and the fourth since we moved into our new facility in March 2012. The average number of deficiencies cited per facility in our region is five and it is seven on the national level.
“The CMS Long Term Care Survey is a newly implemented survey process, which incorporates the most significant federal nursing home regulatory reform in the nation’s history called the Mega Rule,” said Lisa Poskanzer, Vice President of Operations at the Pediatric Center. “New clinical pathways, resident and family interviews and observation protocols were integrated.”
“Our staff have created a loving environment where everyone is respected, welcomed and belongs,” Poskanzer continued. “This third consecutive deficiency-free survey that we are so proud of recognizes that our staff are true champions for our children. We are truly blessed to have such dedicated and loving caregivers.”
