We are not doing well simply based on our own constant assessment and evaluation of ourselves – we also answer to the State of Illinois. Friedman Place is licensed as a Supportive Living Program by the State of Illinois and must follow many of policies and procedures. An annual review is run by the State which includes 3-5 nurses performing an on-site review of resident assessments, medical records and other documents and interviewing staff and residents.
All Supportive Living Programs in Illinois participate in annual reviews. The State almost always finds issues with some aspect of the review, these ‘findings’ require action and follow-up. We are very pleased to share that for 2016, Friedman received a rare perfect score! Now we just have to keep up the good work - we are very proud of this accomplishment!
