Opinions expressed are not necessarily the opinions of the N/Warren Town and County News staff. Letters are printed as received. We do not correct spelling and grammatical errors. November 4, 2010 Residents/Family Members: Norwalk Nursing and Rehab would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing our facility to provide care to you and/or your loved one. Over the past several months the facility has taken great pride and strides towards providing the best possible care to those we serve. During this same time frame the facility received sev- eral visits to the facility from the Department of Inspec- tions and Appeals based on complaints, revisits and an annual survey. These visits resulted in deficiencies that were easily corrected. Despite our commitment to our residents to clear any outstanding deficiencies, the Department of Inspections and Appeals had not yet conducted an on-site revisit inspection by the end of October. Federal regulations required the publication of notice in the Des Moines Register on Wednesday, November 3, 2010 indicating Norwalk Nursing & Rehab's provider agreement for the skilled (Medicare) program would terminate at the close of November 18, 2010, if substantial compliance with any outstanding deficiencies had not been achieved. However, on Tuesday, November 2, 2010 surveyors with DIA conducted a revisit to determine if the facility was in substantial compliance with regards to any out- standing deficiencies. It was determined "on this date that the facility had reached substantial compliance and there fore the notice to terminate the provider agree- ment was null and void. We apologize for the anxiety and unrest this notice might have caused our residents and/or family mem- bers. Please be rest assured that the facility is going to remain open, viable and will continue to provide qual- ity care to our residents. If you have any further ques- tions regarding this matter please do not hesitate to call me at 515-981-0604. Thank you for your continued support.
