Anita Russell and Nancy Sharp Earn Certification

            Anita Russell and Nancy Sharp, both Registered Nurses with Gordon Home Care, have successfully completed the exam for the certificate for OASIS Specialist-Clinical and may now use the designation, COS-C.

 

            To achieve the COS-C designation (sponsored by the OASIS Certificate and Competency Board), an individual must successfully complete a 100-item, two-and-a-half-hour exam. Initiated in October of 2004, over 5,500 home care clinicians from across the country have achieved this status and over 7,300 home care clinicians have taken the exam.

 

            The Outcome Assessment information set (OASIS) is a quality measure used in home health agencies across the country to enhance care for patients in the home. The OASIS Certificate and Competency Board Inc. (OCCB) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting greater reliability in OASIS data through consistent application of guidelines provided by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The OCCB will facilitate this goal by offering a voluntary certificate examination which home care providers may take in order to demonstrate and establish their expertise and commitment to OASIS data accuracy. Candidates who successfully complete the examination will be awarded the Certificate OASIS Specialist – Clinical (COS-C) designation. To learn more about the OCCB, visit www.oasiscertificate.org or call 337-231-6981.
