Veterans Day 2018 - Jersey City2Jersey City, NJ, July 3, 2018Alaris Health at Jersey City is honoring its resident veterans on this Veterans Day Holiday. The display was assembled by Alaris Health at Jersey City employee, Ismael Randazzo, an Army National Guard veteran, to show gratitude to those who served in the Armed Forces.  He constructed the respectful, timely , and educational memorial in the main lobby of the facility for all who visit to honor our fellow veteran residents. He also points out that the display honors the veterans of all wars. During an impromptu talk to the residents and staff about the beginnings of Veterans Day, he noted that it was originally known as Armistice Day. It was on the 11th month of the 11th day of the 11th hour that World War I came to a close.  This display formally gives special recognition to the seven residents who served and are honored on this Veterans Day 2018.

Alaris Health at Jersey City Sets Up Voting Poster Board for Residents

IMG_1153Jersey City, NJ, July 3, 2018 – At Alaris Health we believe that voting is an important resident right.  As such, the Social Service Department at Alaris Health at Jersey City, led by Krystle Rodriguez, CSW, and Stacey Heller, LSW, have created an easy to read poster, which was situated in the lobby, at wheelchair height for their residents.

This poster clearly described the officials who are running for office, such as Bob Menendez and Bob Hugin, amongst others, and what their stances are on important matters.  It even displayed the public questions that are posed during this election time.

Krystle and Stacey thought that this poster board would help answer any questions the residents may have had on voting. According to Stacey, “voting is an important resident right. We want to ensure we allow all of our residents to exercise their right to vote”.

Social Service staff all have accompanied residents to the voting area, which was very close in proximity to the facility.

Celebrating Deficiency Free State Survey LogoJersey City, NJ, July 3, 2018 – Dear family, friends & members of our Alaris Health at Jersey City Community,

We are very proud to announce that Alaris Health at Jersey City has earned a perfect, deficiency-free survey result from the New Jersey Department of Health.

The deficiency-free rating as a result of the State’s rigorous examination is a top indicator of excellence for nursing home care. The state surveyed Alaris Health at Jersey City in early June 2018 for quality outcomes, safety, administration effectiveness, cleanliness, nursing care, activity programs, resident rights and several other areas.

Just last September 2017, the New Jersey Department of Health began its extended survey process making this deficiency-free survey even more impressive than many achieved in years passed.

“I am grateful for all the team members in all the departments that put in many hours of preparation for the survey. I especially want to thank the entire nursing department ; the DON, ADON, Unit managers, RNS, LPNS, and the CNAs who care for our residents and who made this outcome possible. We are also indebted to Meg Rizzo, our RNQA, who guided us through the process and who was a hands on consultant for us all.” – Robert Smolin, Administrator at Alaris Health at Jersey City (10 years at Alaris Health).

Rochelle Park, NJ, March 16, 2018Alaris Health is honored to announce that Sue Roman, Administrator at Alaris Health at The Chateau, received an award last month from the Rochelle Park Police Department for her commitment to supporting law enforcement in the community.

Sue was selected for the award because of her and Alaris Health at The Chateau’s ongoing dedication to and partnership with the Rochelle Park Police Department. Rochelle Park Police Chief Robert Flannely said, “Through blizzards, storms or state emergencies, Sue and the team have always opened their doors to us during challenging times. They provide food and medical care to my officers when other facilities are closed.”

While Sue is grateful for having received the award, she said, “Having strong relationships with the pillars in our community is incredibly important. With the Rochelle Park Police Department, it’s a mutual respect that we have for each other, recognizing and honoring the demands of our professions. They protect and serve the community and we strive to do the same with our residents.”

Police Chief Flannely knows first-hand the level of care and dedication the Alaris Health at The Chateau team provides every day, because his mother was a resident there. “She was treated with outstanding care,” he said. “The staff was professional and nurturing. Sue specifically kept me informed in every step of my mother’s care, including involving me in meetings with doctors and staff. Her attention to detail and deep regards for the residents is truly one of her many assets.”
