-- A licensed residential care facility (RCF) and two home health agencies affiliated to the SAI Group were each awarded "deficiency-
free" status following re-certification surveys by the Ohio Department of Health recently. The State Department found the RCF, Alpine House of Toledo, and the home health companies, AmeriCare Home Health of Bryan, and AmeriCare Home Health of Defiance fully compliant with all applicable Program requirements. The surveys evaluated how regulatory standards are met focusing on processes related to operational systems, documentation, staffing and service delivery systems.
Re-certification surveys by the State are unannounced, and home health agencies are usually undergo surveys every two to three years while residential care facilities receive them roughly every twelve to fifteen months. Congratulating the staff and clients of each of the above healthcare facilities, co-owners Neeti and Joe Wells noted that the group was especially proud of the achievement as the consecutive “perfect” surveys validate the group’s commitment to quality, the stellar care provided by the staff, and the trust of clients.
AmeriCare Home Health of Bryan and AmeriCare Home Health of Defiance are full-service home health agencies that provide skilled nursing, home health aide services, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language pathology, medical social work, and home telehealth.
Alpine House of Toledo is a 36-bed RCF that provides affordable assisted living services including nursing, and on-site rehabilitation therapies to individuals aged 60 years and older.
SAI Group is the umbrella entity that includes seven home health companies serving 21 counties in Ohio, two RCFs, a pet resort and veterinary hospital, and over a dozen commercial and residential rental properties. For more information, please call (419) 636 9900, or visit www.theSAIgroup.org
