Stafford Suites celebrates perfect survey

Locally owned Stafford Suites of Port Orchard announced that it received a deficiency free survey by the Department of Social and Health Services, the regulatory agency governing boarding home licensing for the state, earlier this month.

Denise Hoyt, registered nurse and executive director, credits the perfect survey to her dedicated team of compassionate, professional caregivers and their commitment to the lives of their residents they serve everyday.

“We have such a committed team here,” Hoyt said. “They recognize that it’s all about the residents we serve.”

Assisted living facilities are highly regulated residential settings where staff assumes responsibility for the safety, care and well-being of the individuals who live there. State assisted-living facilities are licensed by the Aging and Disability Service of the Department of Social and Health Services and must be inspected by the department at least every 18 months in order to maintain their boarding home license.

A typical inspection occurs every 15 months.

Stafford Suites has been in the Port Orchard community for more than 15 years.
