Independence Plus is accredited by CHAP (Community Health Accreditation Program). We chose CHAP because of their focus on home-based and community-based health care accreditation, which is a great match with our three service lines: Skilled Hourly Home Nursing, Home Health Visits, and Respiratory Home Medical Equipment.
CHAP surveys are “unannounced,” and last month, CHAP arrived to conduct our re-accreditation survey. We welcomed CHAP surveyors into our facilities and patient homes, and guess what they found? ZERO deficiencies in all three service lines! CHAP was particularly impressed with our low re-hospitalization rate (especially given the medical complexity of our patient population), our training and education programs, and the percentage of hours that are successfully staffed in our Home Nursing service line on a continuous basis.
This success was made possible by our patients and their families, referral sources, physicians, vendors, and most importantly, our employees who are committed to providing excellent healthcare services! We are grateful to all of you.
Thank You to Our ONE TEAM!
Each and every one of our employees, from our field nurses and respiratory care practitioners to our administrative employees (compliance, clinical, finance, human resources, patient services, recruiting, sales, and scheduling teams), played an essential role in our success, and we owe this one to you!
Our employees work passionately and tirelessly to ensure that Independence Plus provides quality healthcare services for the most medically complex, technology-dependent patients in the Chicagoland area. Without your hard work and dedication to keeping our patients stable at home, this wouldn’t be possible!
We sincerely thank all of you for being part of our ONE TEAM and allowing us to do the work we love!
