Royal Cape Cod and Royal Taber Street Both “Deficiency-Free”
The Royal Health Group is proud to announce that two of its nursing facilities – Royal Cape Cod Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Bourne, and Royal Taber Street Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in New Bedford – have recently been surveyed and found to be in full compliance by a very tough grader, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health’s Division of Health Quality. For Taber Street, it’s the 4th
time in the last five years the facility has received this coveted designation!
A “thumbs-up” from the state is a family’s assurance of quality care for a loved one, notes Royal Health Group owner and President, James Mamary, Sr., making the state’s designation all the more important.
“Taber Street is in competition with larger facilities in New Bedford, but more than holds its own with an exceptional track record of care on the South Coast,” said Mamary. “And Royal Cape Cod has always enjoyed excellent grades from the DPH, and this most recent survey continues the trend of consistently high marks for one of the very best nursing homes in the state.”
Royal Cape Cod Executive Director Peter LeBrun cites the consistent excellence of his staff.
“This is directly the result of the hard work put forward every day by the staff of Royal Cape Cod,” said LeBrun. “Perhaps we have been held to a higher standard over the years, and that’s fine with us. We set the bar high and try to reach it every day. Our toughest grader is ourselves.”
Taber Street Executive Director Peter Holden also cited his staff, and “the Joslin diabetes care protocol that has been so effective in a region where diabetes is an especially acute problem with the older population.”
It’s what every nursing home strives for: in essence, to get a grade of “A” from the state, but when a nursing facility can get marked down for even the smallest of infractions, that is not an easy thing to do. Surveys are conducted annually by the state DPH. A facility is given no advance notice that surveyors are going to be visiting, making it essential that all facets of a building’s operation are following state guidelines at all times.
