February 14 14:56 2023
Unity Hospice is proud to announce that its Collinsville, IL location has received a “Deficiency Free Survey.” The survey, conducted every three years, is a review of documentation, care provided, and the program’s ability to meet state and federal requirements.

Collinsville, IL – The “Deficiency Free Survey” is the highest recognition a hospice program can receive and indicates that the surveyor team could identify no issues during the review process. This accomplishment is a testament to the hardworking and dedicated staff at Unity Hospice. The company’s locations in Chicago, Rochelle, and Collinsville have all received deficiency free surveys in the past five years.

The survey process, conducted by the Illinois Department of Public Health, is rigorous and comprehensive. Surveyors arrive unannounced and observe care and procedures over several days, checking records for compliance to regulations on care, confidentiality, cleanliness, patient rights, and quality of services. The survey process also includes interviews with patients, patients’ family members, and hospice employees.

Receiving a “Deficiency Free Survey” is one of the top indicators of excellence in hospice care and is achieved by only a small number of providers. It provides peace of mind to families and patients and demonstrates Unity Hospice’s commitment to providing the highest level of care in an optimum environment.

“This accomplishment is a testament to the great and hardworking staff at Unity Hospice,” said a spokesperson for the company. “The company is proud to meet and exceed rigorous state and federal standards, providing comfort to the families of patients.”

Choosing a hospice program is a critical decision and Unity Hospice is proud to offer its “Deficiency Free Survey” as a sign of its commitment to maintaining high standards of care and ensuring the best possible support for patients.
