Home Health & Hospice Care and the Community Hospice House earned a perfect score on a recent survey by the Health Facility Certification Unit of the NH Department of Health & Human Services. This unit inspects home care and hospice agencies every three years to ensure compliance with State and Federal regulations and to evaluate the quality of care to patients.
Agencies are not privy to when a survey will be conducted which is a very rigorous process. Surveyors arrive unannounced and spend several days interviewing staff, reviewing records, policies and procedures and also visiting with patients. After an exhaustive examination of HHHC’s operations, State officials found no deficiencies to report.
John Getts, CEO of Home Health & Hospice Care, stated, “I’m so pleased to congratulate our staff on the outstanding work that led to this perfect survey by the State. What this truly means is that our agency is providing the best possible care to the thousands of patients we interact with every year, both in the home setting and in the Community Hospice House. I know that our team works extremely hard on a daily basis to make sure our patients and their loved ones feel supported. We will continue to set high standards and provide our southern New Hampshire
communities with the compassion and skilled care that has been a hallmark of our organization for well over a hundred years!”
