Children's Home garners perfect score on State Inspection | News
COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - The Children's Home of Northern Kentucky is celebrating their recent perfect score on on a state inspection from the Cabinet for Health and Family Services’ Office of Inspector General.
Each year, OIG makes an unscheduled visit to any organization licensed by the state of Kentucky to operate as a child-caring facility. CHNK’s 2012 re-licensure survey – a 10-hour process that included physical inspection of facilities as well as agency processes, documentation, and employee files – took place in November. The Home received official notice on November 27 that there were zero deficiencies found at its main campus (located at 200 Home Road) and that no plans of correction were necessary.
“This is exciting news for our entire CHNK family,” states Rick Wurth, Chief Executive Officer of the Home. “First and foremost, this is great news for the children and families in our care.”
In addition to the review from the Office of Inspector General, Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky also received a perfect score with zero deficiencies from its national accrediting agency, the Council on Accreditation (COA), during its last visit in 2010.
The Home receives a visit from its accrediting agency every four years, with the next visit scheduled for 2014.
