AmeriCare (Fremont) is “Deficiency Free”!

Following a survey by the Ohio Department of Health, AmeriCare Home Health of Fremont became the fourth out of the six facilities affiliated to the SAI Group of companies that were surveyed in 2014, and scored “perfect” surveys. The State survey for re-certification concluded on September 25th. Prior to the Fremont facility, SAI group affiliated home health agencies in Bryan and Defiance, and Alpine House of Toledo, a residential care facility, were also awarded ‘deficiency-free’ surveys. The other two facilities that were surveyed this year were AmeriCare Home Health of Toledo, and AmeriCare Home Health of Findlay by the Ohio Department of Health and the Accreditation Commission for Health Care respectively. These facilities also faired extremely well in the surveys with minimal (non-care related) deficiencies noted.

Re-certification surveys for home health agencies are normally conducted by the State every two or three years. The survey process involved multiple surveyors inspecting the company’s performance, and compliance with all applicable program requirements specified by the Center of Medicare & Medicaid Services.

AmeriCare Home Health of Fremont is a full-service home health agency that provides skilled nursing, home health aide services, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language pathology, medical social work, and home telehealth in Ottawa, Sandusky, and Seneca counties of Ohio.
