Dayton, OH – Capital Health Home Care, a certified home health service provider in Dayton, Ohio, has achieved a deficiency-free recertification survey from the state of Ohio.
A deficiency-free survey indicates that Capital Health Home Care is providing the highest level of care to its patients by following state and federal regulations. A survey covers patient safety, patient rights, infection control, and state and federal regulations for providing care among many other criteria.
The agency, operated by Capital Health Care Network, is led by Administrator Marie Hughes.
“We are proud to be recognized for our commitment to performing at the highest level of care,” said Hughes. “This achievement represents our team’s focus on the quality of care we provide to our home care patients.”
Capital Health Home Care in Dayton also received a deficiency-free status during the agency’s last survey in 2018. This accomplishment was achieved by less than 50% of the state’s home care agencies that year according to the Ohio Department of Health (ODH).1
“We had no idea what to expect with the survey following the onset of the pandemic and were a bit nervous,” said Lisa Brown, Chief Operating Officer of Home Care, Hospice & Senior Living at Capital Health Care Network. “Marie and her team have done an excellent job getting and keeping the agency survey ready. We couldn’t be prouder of the team’s efforts.”
State surveys are mandated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) every three years but have been delayed since 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. ODH administers the surveys to check compliance procedures of Medicare health and safety standards for continuing care providers including home care agencies, hospitals, and other facilities serving Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries.
Capital Health Home Care is a division of Capital Health Care Network, an Ohio-based, family-owned company that provides solutions to help seniors age on their own terms. These solutions include home care, senior living, skilled nursing & rehabilitation care, and hospice.
