Home Health & Hospice Gives November Report

The Board of Trustees for the Johnson County Healthcare Center heard the report from Shanda Rodriquez, Manager of Home Health and Hospice services for the healthcare center during their last meeting.

Rodriguez said of the recent quality assurance audits performed for Home Health and Hospice, a few fell below the 95 percentile, and they will keep working on improving those.

The annual Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day had 168 participants which was the largest number of participants they have ever had, according to Rodriguez. She said the event doesn't usually make money, but she believes they will this year, although she did not have a final amount raised.

She is in need of an Registered Nurse but said staffing is “pretty good” other than that need.

The contract her department has with the justice center to give health services to inmates is still going well, she said, with no issues or problems for quite a while.

Finally, she reported that during November there were 8 Medicare home health patients, 10 private pay patients, 13 Medicaid and waiver patients, and 3 active Hospice patients.
