Otterbein North Shore, Lakeside-Marblehead, assisted living community, recently received a perfect score on its annual state survey.
Assisted living communities housing 17 or more people are licensed and surveyed annually by the Ohio Department of Health. Ohio currently has 600 assisted living communities which must meet 324 regulations to achieve a perfect survey. Each year, less than 50% achieve that goal.
“I am very proud of all of the staff,” exclaimed Tom Keith, Regional Executive Director. “It takes a real team effort to achieve these results. It is nice to see that the staff’s hard work and genuine love for our residents is recognized.”
Assisted living is a special combination of housing and supportive services ranging from activities of daily living and medication management or special diets to socialization. Surveys cover everything from building codes to staffing requirements and family and resident satisfaction.
