      • Information, communication, education
      • Physical comfort
      • Emotional support
      • Involvement of family and friends
      • Transition and continuity

In addition, home health agencies that demonstrate the specified level of improvement over a one-year time frame will be recognized with a certificate for excellence in quality improvement. Eligibility for the certificate would include:

  • No Condition of Participation level deficiencies on their last State Survey
