Fort Scott Presbyterian Village earned a zero-deficiency survey from the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services following its inspection June 9, 2015.

This is the seventh consecutive zero-deficiency survey for Fort Scott Presbyterian Village, and the ninth zero-deficiency rating in the past 13 years.

“It is rare for a provider to have zero-deficiency surveys for so many consecutive surveys. We are so proud of our staff for this outstanding achievement,” said Ginger Nance, executive director. “We know that their dedication to our mission and to our residents created a deficiency-free community. Every employee impacts the outcome of the survey since regulations affect every job position at Fort Scott Presbyterian Village.”

Senior living communities are surveyed by their licensing agency for compliance of regulations established by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services. These regulations are designed to ensure a standard of care is met. By meeting this standard, senior living communities are able to renew their licenses and continue to provide care.

“Every day I see our employees go above and beyond in the care they provide,” Nance said. “This recognition is tangible proof of our commitment to providing quality senior care and services based on Christian values. The way you want to live is more than a tagline for Fort Scott Presbyterian Village; it is a culture built on the understanding of compassionate service to seniors—a foundation of trust for families and their loved ones.

“This is a rare accomplishment, and we feel like superheroes,” Nance said.

To celebrate this accomplishment, staff received super hero T-shirts, dressed like superheroes and had a celebration.

Fort Scott Presbyterian Village is an assisted living community, which means it is licensed by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services. Residents have their own private apartments, one or two bedrooms complete with all appliances, and may receive some assistance with activities of daily living. The apartment setting is perfect for a single person or for couples to remain together and age in place with compassionate help always available if and when they need it. The Presbyterian Village setting is not only suitable for those who need physical assistance but designed for independent seniors, as well.
