VCHS Home Health Deficiency Free in Recent Survey

Valley County Health System (VCHS) Home Health was deficiency free in their recent state survey completed by the State of Nebraska’s Health & Human Services Division of Public Health, Licensure Unit. 

The survey process is a comprehensive assessment of Home Health agencies to ensure compliance with federal and state regulations and quality patient care. It is one of the top indicators of excellence for an agency. The surveyor makes home visits with nursing, therapy and aide staff.  During these visits they observe and evaluate all aspects of care, procedures and practices.

The surveys are unannounced and conducted for approximately a week. A thorough review of core criteria including quality care, safety, administration, documentation and patient rights is conducted. These surveys assure area residents that they have quality health care options close to home.

“As national and state health regulations become more stringent, it is becoming increasingly difficult to achieve a deficiency-free rating,” VCHS CEO Nancy Glaubke said. “It is through the hard work, dedication and compassion the Home Health team has for their patients that we receive this rating.”

VCHS Home Health & Hospice offers services in 11 central Nebraska counties. For more information about these services, call 308-728-4355.
