Guam - As part of their annual recertification survey, federal inspectors from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services visited the GMH skilled nursing unit last week.
GMH administrator Joseph Verga says the facility did fairly well from quality of care, to error-free medication rates, but did see minor findings in areas of assessment, rights, care plans, infection control, medical records and physical environment.
GMH will receive a report on the visit within 10 days and have another 10 days to respond with plans of correction.
Verga remains confident the SNU will retain its full certification by CMS.
