WARRENSBURG, Mo. — A U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs federal inspection team conducted an annual visit to Missouri Veterans Home~Warrensburg October 18-21, 2010. The purpose of the routine inspection was to ensure the Home’s compliance with national regulatory standards. Results of the in-depth inspection found the Home to be in full compliance with all 157 federal regulations, a rare accomplishment for any skilled nursing center. Results were just formally released to the Home from the Kansas City Department of Veterans Affairs before the holidays.

“This is certainly an amazing testament to the professional, compassionate staff who care for our Veterans on a daily basis, as well as the guidance and spectacular leadership we receive from our governing authority, the Missouri Veterans Commission,” said Eric Endsley, MVH~Warrensburg Administrator.

During their visit, the nine-member team surveyed the Home’s various departments to thoroughly review paperwork, policies and procedures. The team also met with employees at every level of the organization, as well as Veterans and their family members to conduct interviews and satisfaction evaluations.

The team highlighted a number of areas of excellence, including the positive relationships shared between staff and Veterans, the Home’s atmosphere and cleanliness, and the outstanding level of organization and attention to detail practiced on each of the four Veteran Neighborhoods.

During the outbrief, the inspectors noted that they have conducted similar surveys across the nation and would rank Missouri Veterans Home~Warrensburg as one of only a handful of truly outstanding long term care organizations.

“Despite our success, this is no time to rest on our laurels,” said Endsley. “Every day, we have to continue to strive for excellence in serving our Nation’s Heroes to ensure that we provide the best possible care available.”
