Successful State Survey for Jane Baker House

September 2 to September 4, the Ohio Department of Health completed their annual survey of the Jane Baker House at Otterbein North Shore. The thorough multiple day survey was a success for Otterbein as they received positive marks and continue to be a top skilled nursing facility.   

The survey is a CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) Quality Indicator Survey and is comprised of an entrance survey, facility tours, resident observation, clinical record review, preliminary investigations and interviews with residents and families. These surveys look at every aspect of the nursing facility and are of critical importance to the facility and CMS. Other items like observation of dining and kitchen areas, infection control practices, medication administration, dressing change observation, the review of the Medicare Demand Billing process, and staffing are all closely inspected.

LEAP hopes to expand opportunities for kids of Ottawa County

Lake Erie Adventure Play (LEAP) is an event around Ottawa County, where kids play with cardboard boxes, paint, fabric and recycled materials to create kid-oriented play spaces. 

The United Way program provides opportunities for kids and their caregivers to engage in child-directed play, play that evolves when children choose what to play and make up their own rules for how to play. Studies show that this type of play allows children to practice innovative thinking skills, build self-confidence and become independent thinkers and problem-solvers – all skills needed in our global business environment.
