The Home Receives “Deficiency-Free” Rating

We are pleased to share that the Home begins the year 2018 having received a “Deficiency-Free” rating from the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services (NJDHSS).

The rating is the highest awarded by NJDHSS and comes following an unannounced, on-site inspection survey primarily evaluating our Mountain View Skilled Nursing Unit. The survey provides a comprehensive assessment of the Home’s compliance with over 1,500 specific state standards in every area of operation — including care provided, condition of the building and grounds, integrity of record-keeping procedures and more.

The deficiency-free rating represents an exceptional level of care. From 2010 through 2014, 16 percent or fewer New Jersey skilled nursing facilities the size of the Home’s (50-99 beds) achieved deficiency-free ratings according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ 2015 Nursing Home Data Compendium, the most recent available. Fewer than 14 percent of all nursing homes in the state achieved similar results.

“This is proof of the incredible work our staff does year-round,” said Carlos G. Beato, Interim Administrator. “Their dedication to our residents makes our Home extraordinary, and we can all be proud of the excellent care that this rating indicates.”

As a certified continuing care retirement community, the Holland Christian Home offers three levels of care — Independent Living, Supportive Care and Skilled Nursing — all in the same facility as part of our Life Care program. Our Mountain View Skilled Nursing wing includes 52 beds and is fully staffed with 24/7 medical care. With over 150 total staff, the Home is dedicated to meeting the highest standards so that our residents can enjoy physically, spiritually and emotionally fulfilling lives.
