Home Health Agency Consumer Reports

The Indiana State Department of Health, Acute Care Division, is pleased to make home health agency information available to consumers. This information is being made available to help evaluate the availability and quality of home health agencies within the state of Indiana. The Division inspects home health agencies to assess compliance with state and federal standards. This survey information, along with other information is being provided in a "Home Health Agency Consumer Report" format. These reports may be used to compare information on licensed home health agencies.

About the Surveys:

 Surveys are unannounced

 Surveyors are registered nurses

 A survey report is sent to the home health care agency after each survey

 If standards and/or conditions are not met for a federal survey, or if rules are not met for a state survey, then the home health agency must submit a plan of correction to the Division

 A follow-up survey may be made to verify that compliance has been achieved

 Surveys look at the care provided to a sample of the clients

 Surveys only reflect a snapshot in time
