STATE LICENSURE SURVEYS
The ISDH conducts a state licensure survey at each licensed hospital
approximately once per year.  The survey includes the licensed hospital and a
sample of off-site hospitals, agencies, or services operated under the license.  If
a hospital is accredited, the hospital may substitute the accreditation survey for
the state licensure on-site survey.  In years when an accreditation survey is
performed, there will not be a state licensure survey conducted by the ISDH.  If
deficiencies are sited on a survey, the hospital may be requested by the ISDH to
complete a plan of correction on how and when they will correct each deficiency
and who will be responsible to ensure the corrections are made and will not
reoccur in the future.  The plan of correction is generally submitted by the
hospital and reviewed by the ISDH within fifteen (15) days of the survey.

The following is a summary of the three most recent state licensure surveys.
Accreditation surveys are not included in the table below.

SUBSTANTIATED COMPLAINTS
Any person may file a complaint with the ISDH about a hospital.  The ISDH 
investigates all complaints.  If in the course of the investigation a violation of 
state or federal rules or regulations is found by surveyors, the complaint is said 
to be 'substantiated with findings'.  If the surveyor verifies the facts of the 
complaint but finds that no violation occurred of state rules or federal 
regulations, the complaint is said to be 'substantiated without findings'.  If 
deficiencies are cited on a complaint survey, the hospital may be requested by the
ISDH to complete a plan of correction on how and when they will correct each 
deficiency and who will be responsible to ensure the corrections are made and will 
not reoccur in the future.  The plan of correction is generally submitted by the 
hospital and reviewed by the ISDH within fifteen (15) days of the survey.
   
The following is a summary of the number of substantiated complaint investigations
for the past three years.  This only indicates whether the complaint was
substantiated and does not indicate whether the hospital was found in compliance
with state rules or federal regulations.  The survey history section below will
show whether or not deficiencies were found on a specific complaint survey.

THIRD PARTY REIMBURSEMENT
Accepts Medicare The hospital accepts Medicare reimbursement and meets the standards that the federal government has set for the provided services. Yes
Accepts Medicaid The hospital accepts Medicaid reimbursement and meets the standards that the Indiana Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning has set for provided services. Yes
   
HOSPITAL ACCREDITATION STATUS
Indiana hospitals must be licensed by the ISDH.  While the ISDH does not 
require hospitals to be accredited, many hospitals voluntarily apply for 
accreditation from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare 
Organizations (JCAHO), the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), or 
other accreditation organizations.  Accreditation surveys are performed 
by the accreditation association once every three years.
 
In order for a hospital to participate in and receive payment from the Medicare
or Medicaid programs, it must be certified as complying with the CMS Conditions
of Participation.  The State survey process is the primary method for achieving
certification.  However, if a national accrediting organization, such as JCAHO,
has and enforces standards that meet the Federal Conditions of Participation,
CMS may grant the accreditation organization 'deeming' authority, and 'deem' 
each accredited hospital as meeting the Medicare and Medicaid certification requirements.
The hospital would have 'deemed status' and would not be subject to additional Medicare
surveys by the State agency.  The following chart indicates if this hospital is 
accredited and if the hospital accreditation is 'deemed' by CMS and ISDH.
Accreditation Organization Effective date of accreditation Expiration date of accreditation Deemed (Y/N)
JC 10/13/2012 10/13/2015 Yes
   
SURVEY HISTORY
 
The following is a list of state licensure, accreditation, complaint, and federal 
surveys completed at the hospital in the past five years. 
 
The survey report is not posted until the report has been provided to the facility 
and their plan of correction submitted and approved, if required.
The survey report therefore will likely not be posted until four to six weeks after the exit date.

CENTERS FOR MEDICARE AND MEDICAID SERVICES (CMS) HOSPITAL QUALITY ALLIANCE (HQA)
 
Background on the HQA
 
The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Quality Alliance
(HQA) is a public-private collaboration that collects and reports hospital quality
performance information.  This effort is intended to make critical information
about hospital performance accessible to the public and to inform and invigorate
efforts to improve quality.  Participating hospitals are voluntarily reporting the
data.  The goals are to promote the best medical practices associated with the
targeted clinical disorders, prevent or reduce further instances of these selected
clinical disorders, and prevent related complications.
 
The HQA identified three medical conditions as a starter set.  The three
conditions are acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure, and
pneumonia.  Ten (10) clinical quality measures were then selected to include five
measures on acute myocardial infarction; tow measures on heart failure; and
three measures on pneumonia.  Each measure represents a treatment that the
health care provider should follow in treating the condition.
 
The number of measures and conditions will be expanded in the coming years.
Seven additional measures and one condition will be added in 2005 and five
additional measures will be added in 2006.
 
Indiana Hospital Quality Alliance Data
 
The following will link you to the Hospital Quality Alliance data for Indiana
hospitals.  CMS updates the Hospital Quality Alliance data quarterly.  Upon
receipt of updates from CMS, the data is processed and integrated into the ISDH
Hospital Consumer Report.  The report will state the time period covered by the
data.  Not all hospitals have reported data to CMS.  Additional hospitals have
submitted data that is currently being processed by CMS and will be included on
future updates.  Psychiatric, children's, rehabilitation hospital, and critical
access hospitals are generally not included in the data collection.
