Department of Health Licensure Survey

From June 16-19, 2008, four surveyors conducted our biennial Pennsylvania Hospital Licensure survey. The surveyors were very complimentary of our care and service, and at this time, we do not anticipate any required plans of correction related to clinical care. Specifically, they commented on the performance improvement follow-through evidenced in the minutes of the Medical Staff committees. The surveyors reminded us that all entries, such as orders and progress notes, must be timed and dated as a Medicare Condition of Participation. Thank you for your involvement in continually improving the care and service to our patients and your attention to regulatory and accrediting standards.
