Home health star scores released

There is a new way to rank home health quality. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has published star ratings on Home Health Compare, CMS's public information site for home health agencies. Star ratings help consumers select providers, and they help agencies identify areas for improvement.

Riverside's home health services based in Newport News, Gloucester, Tappahannock and the Eastern Shore all received 4 or more stars for quality, compared to a Virginia average of 3.5, and a national average of 3.


Safety

Richard Knowles

A man battling a prolonged illness could not be brought in for an outpatient MRI during normal hours at Riverside Walter Reed Hospital. Technologist Richard Knowles knew the family was concerned, so before leaving for the day, he gave his personal phone number to the Emergency Room doctor, and when the patient arrived, he came back in to conduct the test. "If that was my father, I would want someone to do that for him," Richard said
