(Grinnell, IA – September 14, 2020) During its recent annual survey by the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals conducted August 24-27, St. Francis Manor demonstrated why it is the highest-rated skilled nursing facility in Poweshiek County as it earned another deficiency-free survey in support of its 5-star rating by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). In addition to receiving this recent deficiency-free annual survey, St. Francis Manor was deficiency-free for an off-site infection control survey as well as an on-site infection control performance survey conducted earlier this year.
“We appreciate all the efforts of our staff as they continue to strive for excellence,” said Executive Administrator Dion Schrack. “Special recognition goes to Administrator/RN Tiffany Criswell for her leadership role in providing quality services to our residents, an excellent survey, and the CMS 5-star rating of our facility.”
