Clay Center gets 0 deficiencies on 2nd infection control survey 2020

Clay Center Presbyterian Manor received zero deficiencies on a focused infection control survey conducted by the Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) July 27.

With zero deficiencies, Clay Center Presbyterian Manor’s assisted living met all the standards for infection control.

In June, the Kansas Legislature instructed KDADS to survey all adult care homes and other adult services licensed by the state within 90 days to ensure adult care homes and home plus agencies were prepared to respond to the threat of disease caused by the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

“I am so proud of the Clay Center Presbyterian Manor team and how hard they have worked to follow stringent infection control practices to protect our residents’ health and safety,” said Morgan Burton, executive director. “This is a tremendous recognition of the hard work in this difficult situation.”

Clay Center Presbyterian Manor is a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), or life plan community, offering independent living, assisted living, long-term health care and short-term rehabilitation.

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