Quality Assurance Process

Resident-care procedures are regularly reviewed and revised as necessary to prevent accidental injury in the bath and other locations.

Facility Design

Safety of residents at Cortland Acres begins with or facility's design and maintenance. Our wide halls, slip-free floor surfaces, handrails, lighting, and absence of obstructions are basic to patient safety.

Devices and procedures are in place to prevent residents from leaving the facility without authorization.

Emergency Planning

Our staff is in full compliance with our documented emergency procedures for evacuation in the event of a fire or other emergency event. These procedures are rehearsed by our staff to ensure compliance.

Bed Safety

We utilize a variety of bed systems not only for resident comfort, but also to maximize the safety of those who are frail, confused, restless or have uncontrollable body movement and may be at risk for entrapment.
