At Home Nursing Care is proud to announce it is once again accredited for quality home care through the Accreditation Commission for Health Care. This voluntary extra screening and stamp of approval by licensed surveyors allows the agency to promote accredited quality home care, including companionship services, in home caregiving, private duty nursing, and Medicare Certified Home Health Care visits.
At Home Nursing Care, Inc. was originally accredited back in 2016, a major step to demonstrate to experienced homecare surveyors that we follow a higher standard of quality in home care. In 2019, its homecare services accreditation was renewed with zero deficiencies, and in late 2019, a separate survey recommended deemed status for Medicare Certified Home Health care visits.
Accreditation means a home health care agency promotes quality home care by meeting stringent national standards. A registered nurse conducts an in person survey of the home health agency, which is unannounced. The accreditation survey includes interviews with employees and clients and a review of charts and agency policies.
At Home Nursing Care earned accreditation for both areas it serves, San Diego County and the West Side, South Bay areas of Los Angeles County and Culver City.
The parent office of At Home Nursing Care is located in Encinitas, California, and oversees the operations of the branch office based in Culver City, California.
The Accreditation Commission for Health Care ia a not-for-profit and as a result, has stood independently as a symbol of excellent quality home care evaluation since 1986.
Earning accreditation allows both the Encinitas At Home Nursing Care main office and the Culver City homecare branch to be listed on the accredited home care directory, a website limited to accredited agency where families can look for care in their geographic area.
“I am proud that our caregivers welcomed this challenge and excelled,” says Reynolds, “They cared about meeting this goals, and therefore they have learned extra skills to provide the best care for their clients.”
At Home Nursing Care provides dementia care, companionship, personal care, light housekeeping, errands, RN case management, medication management and home infusions. It staffs nurses in hospitals and nursing facilities. In addition, the agency assigns nurses to work local school districts. This allows medically fragile children the support needed to attend classes with their peers.
