‘Deficiency Free’ ACHA Audit

Hopewell’s Tallahassee office recently received a ‘Deficiency Free’ audit from the Agency for Health Care Administration (ACHA). The mission statement at ACHA is simple: “Better Healthcare for all Floridians.” Through their audits of health care companies, ACHA enhances the care of all Floridians by ensuring that providers are licensed, that policies and procedures are being followed, that fraud is reported and unsafe providers are removed from providing services.

A deficiency free survey indicates that the health care provider is providing the highest level of care and that they are following state laws.   The ACHA survey covers topics such as: patient safety, emergency preparedness, patient’s rights, infection control and many other areas.  Therefore, achieving a Deficiency Free audit in time of strict regulatory oversight is difficult and increasingly rare.   Jami Eddy, Director of Operations at Hopewell In-Home Senior Care says, “A deficiency free audit is the result of having a great team that seamlessly blends nursing oversight with operations.”

Hopewell In-Home Senior Care is a provider of Homemakers, Companions, Certified Nurse Assistants, Home Health Aides, and nurses for any senior who may need assistance with activities of daily living. Hopewell has offices in Tallahassee, Florida and Thomasville, Georgia.
