Licensed Home Care Service Agencies

The purpose of the LHCSA surveillance is to ensure that patients receive the highest possible quality of care and to assist the DOH with follow-up activities designed to improve that quality.

NYCHSRO staff reviews the policy and procedure manuals submitted by LHCSA applicants, conducts pre-opening surveys to ensure that the agency is ready to serve patients, recommendation licensure, and conducts re-certification inspections to ensure that the agency continues to operate in accordance with regulations.
