Kennewick General Hospital's Home Health Department recently underwent an unannounced survey by Medicare. The surveys are conducted every 2-years by a Washington State Department of Health nurse surveyor.
The surveyor conducted 5 home visits with staff, reviewed 15 patient charts and examined 6 employee files. KGH Home Health received a report of no deficiencies, which means they are in compliance with the Medicare Conditions of Participation for Home Health Agencies.
Jonathan Brenn indicates, "we are very proud of our Home Health care staff. The outcome of this survey proves what we already knew, and that is that our Home Health care staff continues to provide the best possible care to our patients!"
