Congratulations to Our New OASIS Team Members

We are pleased to announce that two of our dedicated employees, Terry Sweet and Dawn McElhaney, have just earned their certification as OASIS specialists in the clinical field. This means that they are now experts in filling out the Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS). The OASIS is a standardized assessment and set of data that is taken on nearly every patient that enters our care. It is how we help to determine the extent of their condition as well as how we report these outcomes to Medicare.

With this new designation, Terry and Dawn may now use the title COS-C after their names.

Congratulations again to Terry and Dawn on their hard work and achievements!
