The Douglas County Visiting Nurses Assn. joined a select group of home health agencies in Kansas when it recently received accreditation from the Joint Commission of Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).

Of the 334 home health agencies in the state, only 60 are JCAHO certified, said VNA director Marceil Lauppe.

"JCAHO is the nation's oldest and largest accrediting body," Lauppe told VNA's board of directors, "and receiving an overall score of 95 on our JCAHO review is a significant achievement."
