MOUNTAIN View Rest Home collected a perfect result during its latest audit, ranking it among the country’s best facilities.
The Kawerau rest home received a 100 percent score from the recent audit and on August 28 the centre received a certificate of appreciation from Bay of Plenty District Health Board for demonstrating excellence.
BOPDHB planning and funding general manager Simon Everitt presented the Mountain View team with the certificate.
He said it recognised the outstanding teamwork and commitment from staff to ensure the best quality care for residents.
The audit result also guaranteed the rest home’s certification for another four years.
Mountain View manager Jeanette Crook said the centre focus was always its residents.
“This great result is merely part of the continuous journey we are on to provide excellent care to the elderly of this small community,” she said.
The audit praised Mountain View’s continual improvement in five areas – community involvement projects, food procurement and delivery, investment and emergency management – where it provided service over and above what the ministry of health requires.
