Sumner Place is proud to announce that during their 2013 Annual State of Nebraska Survey this July, they received zero deficiencies. In the most recent survey administered by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Sumner Place was rated deficiency-free for the second consecutive year. This is a great honor and testament to the care provided at Sumner Place for two years in a row. It is unusual for a nursing home to receive a deficiency-free survey, meaning all services provided at these facilities meet or exceed all state and federal standards. All nursing homes are inspected annually to evaluate services and renew state licensure. Unannounced, surveyors come in to interview, observe, and check records for at least four days. If each of the hundreds of regulations are met, the nursing home is awarded a “deficiency-free” survey.
Sumner Place, owned and managed by Vetter Health Services (VHS), is licensed as a skilled nursing facility serving individuals in need of short-term rehabilitation for reasons such as joint replacements, cardiac surgeries, stroke and a variety of other medical needs. As a skilled nursing facility, Sumner Place also serves those needing long-term care and memory support care. For more information on Sumner Place, visit www.vetterhealthservices.com/sumnerplace.
