Thankfully it's done and we did well. Although we understand the necessity of it, those of us who work there dread it. The surveyors stay a week, they follow us with clipboards, writing things down, they ask lots of questions and it's just stressful!
The team we had this year was quite pleasant and had common sense. I've worked there for 23 years and that isn't always the case. A few crazy citations I remember are - a banana peel on a table was labeled as trash on the table, (The resident was sitting at the table eating the banana) we were cited for not having a policy for cleaning a fly swatter... Of course, if you looked at the survey, you wouldn't find these written out. They would go under something like infection risk which always sounds worse than it is.
However, as I said this year went well. When they did their exit, the head person said that they could tell this was a good place and she said she would put her mother here if she had to. She also said they interviewed residents and family members and heard only good things, no complaints!
What a relief to be done for another year!
