The CDC performs routine unannounced surveys of all hospitals, according to the report. The survey, performed every three years, is to ensure compliance with Medicare and Medicaid regulations. Surveyors interview staff, observe care and procedures, check records on issues of care, confidentiality, cleanliness, patient rights and quality of service. “The hospital’s inspection last week reflected a 100 percent passing score,” which the report said was “relatively rare. It shows that all services provided meet or exceed all state and federal standard,” said the news release from the hospital.
“When everyone is moving toward the common goal of the hospital’s mission…our dedicated team puts the patient first… it yields this kind of survey outcome. I am so incredibly proud of our team of providers, patient care staff and support staff, who collaborate on a daily basis to do what is best for the patient” said Vicki Gigliotti, chief clinical officer at MRH.
