Park View Achieves Deficiency-Free Survey

Park View Senior Health and Living Health Care Center recently achieved a perfect, deficiency-free survey from the Minnesota Department of Health.

The survey followed a comprehensive review of the care and services provided at Park View in Buffalo, MN.

“We appreciate the recognition by the Minnesota Department of Health and our recent deficiency-free nursing survey,” said Park View Administrator Mat Bedard. “That is a rare achievement for a care center and it is only possible by having the talented and caring people we have at Park View.”

Nursing homes must comply with federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements to receive payment under Medicare or Medicaid programs. The state completes regular, unannounced surveys to ensure settings remain in compliance with regulations and provide safe, quality care.

Minnesota Department of Health surveyors evaluated the processes, procedures, general operations, and physical plants, as well as information submitted by Park View staff. Surveyors also interviewed staff, residents and family members of residents to gain perspective on the care provided at Park View.

Park View also recently ranked No. 6 out of 324 senior living communities in the Minnesota Department of Human Services Quality Indicator Rankings. MDH gathers resident quality information quarterly from Skilled Nursing Facilities across the state and assigns a ranking to each.

“At Park View, it is a privilege to serve this community and it is a responsibility our team takes seriously,” Bedard said. “We are intentional at improving health outcomes for our residents because of the relationships we forge with them at their families. More than a great ranking within the state from the Minnesota Department of Human Services, we are proud that these outcomes represent real quality of life improvements for the people we care about in our community.”

Park View has been serving generations of Wright County residents since 1962.

Park View is a Cassia community, with a mission to foster fullness of life for older adults in the spirit of Christ’s love. Cassia provides independent and assisted living communities, memory care, skilled nursing care centers, short-term rehabilitation centers, adult day programs and a variety of community-based services for older adults across five states.
