RVNAhealth is pleased to announce that the Department of Public Health of the State of Connecticut has renewed RVNAhealth’s Home Health Care License for the period from April 1, 2020 through March 31, 2023, the maximum period for a license renewal. The renewal was awarded to RVNAhealth following a site visit and audit which began on Tuesday, December 17, 2019.
As with all Department of Public Health re-licensure activities, the visit was unannounced and included extensive reviews and audits of clinical files as well as visits to both patient residences and facilities over the course of several weeks. The Home Health Care License applies to the following RVNAhealth services: Skilled Nursing; Rehabilitation including Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapies; Home Health Aides; Medical Social Work, and Hospice Care. The license is in effect through March 2023, while RVNAhealth remains in good standing and adheres to all applicable Connecticut State rules and regulations.
“While we are always confident regarding the delivery of our services and our adherence to State regulations,” says Theresa Santoro, RVNAhealth President and CEO, “we appreciate the DPH’s recognition and certainty with this renewal. We have never had a DPH visit over the end-of-year holidays before, and we also applaud our team who went the extra mile during this time to provide data and materials to our State representatives. This is an excellent start to the new decade.”
