“Deficiency Free” Recognition Indicates the Residence Meets the Highest Standards in Statewide Benchmarks for Care and Safety
The Poet’s Walk Round Rock Memory Care Community recently earned the industry-respected designation of deficiency free when they were found to be in 100 percent compliance with state requirements from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC). HHSC conducted the survey on August 16, 2018. The state conducts this survey and grades senior care facilities based on a number of criteria to assess resident care and resident safety. Assisted living facilities are regulated under Health and Safety Code, Chapter 247 and Texas Administrative Code(TAC), Title 40, Part I, Chapter 92.
Erio Rosario, Executive Director of Poet’s Walk Round Rock, commented on the dedication it takes to be deficiency free, “Everyone at Poet’s Walk Round Rock works tirelessly to provide for residents the very best care year-round. Having received this designation is affirmation that we are succeeding and I, for one, couldn’t be prouder of the entire Poet’s Walk team for always going above and beyond.” Alexander Markowits, President/CEO of Spring Hills Senior Communities agrees, “To be deficiency free is truly telling about the team and the care they provide at Poet’s Walk Round Rock. The whole company is overjoyed for everyone there.”
Texas law requires certain types of health care facilities to be licensed in order to provide services. Regulatory activities include surveying facilities, reviewing complaints, investigating possible violations, evaluating evidence, reviewing plans of correction, and determining administrative penalties. At the end of the inspection, there were “No Violations Cited” for Poet’s Walk Round Rock. Working collaboratively with stakeholders, HHSC establishes rules and standards for facilities’ general operations, patient services, and physical plants, as well as procedural rules regarding license applications and issuance, complaints, violations, and enforcement.
