GREENSBORO – The Greensboro Nursing Home (GNH) was recently surveyed by the State of Vermont and earned the rare accomplishment of a deficiency-free rating.

Six employees of the Vermont Department of Health and Human Services spent three business days conducting this major annual survey determining if GNH was in compliance with the federal and state regulations involving Medicare and Medicaid.

GNH Administrator Michelle Pippa praised the staff who made the zero-deficiency rating possible. Her first thought was of the nursing home staff whose hard work, skill and dedication to the residents was so vital. She singled out two employees who are helping to make a difference: Tanya Boudreau, the assistant administrator, and Carolyn McTigue, new director of nursing. Pippa also acknowledged the support of the board of trustees, and the financial donors and volunteers. One point of pride on the part of GNH is its ability to accept residents from distant towns who can now be visited more easily by their families who live nearby.
