Representatives from Universal Home Health & Hospice Care announced this week that the agency has just received a zero deficiency home health survey conducted by the Ohio Department of Health.

As of Jan. 1, there were a total of 800 Medicare-certified home health agencies in Ohio. For the third quarter of 2014, only 21.64 percent of those agencies received this level of performance evaluation.

A zero deficiency survey is acquired by providing excellent patient care, supplying proficient documentation, as well as establishing and executing exceptional protocol in daily operating procedures. Home healthcare surveys are conducted every three years by the Ohio Department of Health.
