on achieving accreditation!
"I would like to say, as the facility administrator and a RN, I thought that the surveying team was beyond excellent. It was a survey that had actual value for our facility and our patient’s safety. The process was extremely collaborative, thought provoking and most of all, led by an intelligent, common sense oriented team. Overall it was an excellent experience."
