Texas nursing homes participating in Medicare and Medicaid, such as Sunset Home, a program of Lutheran Sunset Ministries, are required by federal law to undergo an annual survey and certification process by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS). These inspections (surveys) generally last three to four days and are unannounced. Surveyors examine everything and every department, with a fine tooth comb. The survey assesses whether the quality of care, as intended by the law and regulations and as needed by the resident, is being provided in the nursing home.
Sunset Home in Clifton, Texas, is proud to announce they received zero deficiencies during their survey in December. The most recent statistics available show the average nursing home in Texas received an average of nine deficiencies in 2014, with only 10.1% – 13.5% receiving zero deficiencies. With these stats in mind, Sunset Home is honored to be among the top percentile in Texas. For more information on DADS, please visit www.dads.state.tx.us.
