Rim Country Health and Retirement Community is among an elite group of skilled nursing facilities in Arizona. For the second year in a row it has been given a 100 percent quality rating by the state of Arizona. The rating is the result of a very rigorous inspection, which investigates every aspect of nursing homes to determine the quality of the care provided, the environment, the food, the activities, the facility and more. Owner Harvey Pelovsky recently talked with the Roundup about the inspection and the rating. “Each facility in the state is inspected every 15 months. The state comes in with the objective to find problems and deficiencies,” he said. The facility’s personnel must then submit a plan of correction for any citations and make the required improvements within 30 days.
