Oswego Health and Rehab does well on survey

OSWEGO — During the last month Oswego Health and Rehab, 1104 Ohio, had its first annual state survey as a Mission Health Community.

An annual survey is required by law and is elaborate. Inspectors are onsite for several days, and the resulting report may be hundreds of pages long. The average number of  deficiencies this year for a skilled nursing facility such as Oswego Health and Rehab is 10.8. Oswego Health and Rehab passed the survey this year with only three minor deficiencies.

In March the facility underwent a change of ownership, and the staff and new corporation have strived to make Oswego Health and Rehab one of the best facilities around. The facility focuses on the overall wellness of its residents and its commitment to them. It is always Oswego Health and Rehab’s mission to give residents the highest possible quality of care. 

“I could not be more proud of our team,” Jenifer Morey, administrator, said in a prepared statement. “You work hard for so long, and sometimes the end results are not what you want or expect. It was great to see the results of all the hard work pay off.”

Much progress has been made in the past several months in employee morale and resident care, Morey said.

“We will continue to improve on employee morale and resident care,” she said. “You can not become complacent with where you are. There are always things that can be done better.”

Oswego Health and Rehab offers long- and short-term placement, skilled nursing rehab, physical therapy, speech pathology and occupational therapy in a homelike environment. Anyone wanting more information on the facility can contact Morey or Katie Littlejohn, director of nursing, at (620) 795-4429.


Fastenal moves

Fastenal has moved to a larger, more convenient location.

Jacob Hoppes, general manager, said the new location in a building being leased from Ken Ervin of Parsons at 800 S. 16th offers more space and is closer to Fastenal’s customers. The store formerly was located at 225 Main.

The front portion of the store stocks everyday items such as hardware, power and hand tools and ladders as well as safety, janitorial and welding equipment while the back part of the building is used primarily for supplies used by Fastenal’s regular industrial customers.

“We stock a lot of customer-specific parts,” Hoppes said.

Industrial customers can either go to the store for parts and supplies or call in orders to be delivered. The business also offers an inventory management service in which Fastenal employees go to industries and determine what supplies need to be restocked and then deliver them.

The supplies in back of the store also are available for sell to other walk-in customers, and the store can special order other items.

Fastenal is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
