St. Anne Communities at Victory Noll has achieved a deficiency-free annual survey for 2018, as administered by the Indiana State Department of Health.

For an assisted living community to achieve a deficiency-free survey all services provided must meet and/or exceed all state standards. A deficiency-free survey in Indiana’s rigorous annual examination is one of the top indications of excellence for an assisted living community.

Those facilities are inspected annually to evaluate services and renew state licensure. Unannounced, surveyors come in to interview, observe resident care and check records. Surveyors determine compliance with regulations governing areas such as quality of care, residents’ rights, confidentiality and quality of service. If all regulations are met, the assisted living center is awarded a “deficiency-free” survey.

Anne Crawley is the administrator at St. Anne Communities and Theresa Kitt is director of resident-centered care. They say they are proud of their team.
