TULSA, Okla., Dec. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Zarrow Pointe has earned a zero-deficiency rating in the annual inspection

of its nursing center by the Oklahoma State Department of Health – an achievement that has placed the retirement community in the top tier nursing care facilities of Oklahoma.

Conducted every year by the Oklahoma

State Department's Long Term Care and Protective Health Services, typically, the annual inspection is a rigorous five-day audit performed by surveyors without prior notice, to evaluate licensed long-term care facilities for compliance of mandatory regulations. In order to remain eligible for license renewal, nursing care facilities must meet required standards in all aspects of resident care and facility operations.

Surveyors conducting the annual inspections examine multiple categories, including resident satisfaction, quality of nursing care, medication administration, policies and procedures, dietary services, environmental services, sanitation standards, medical records, administration, equipment, maintenance, social services, human resource management, and the combined safety, quality and effectiveness of the facility.

For over three decades, the Zarrow Pointe retirement community has consistently served senior citizens in Tulsa by delivering an exceptional program that combines quality care with a philosophy of wellness. Tailored programs emphasizing growth, learning, fitness and exploration, give residents every opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential.

A deficiency-free status from the State Department of Health is an outstanding achievement for Zarrow Pointe, and a testament to the tireless efforts of our staff members, who go above and beyond to deliver exceptional care to our residents by putting their needs first, in everything that they do."
