Washington, DC – April 29, 2016 – The American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) honored Raymond
Bower, Administrator of Riverside Rest Home in Dover, NH with the 2016 Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award. The
leadership award was celebrated during the awards luncheon at ACHCA’s 50th Annual Convocation and Exposition in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, April 19, 2016. Two hundred and eighty-eight administrators were awarded
leadership awards nationally, 42 of which were at the awards luncheon.
Mr. Bower was one of 42 Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award recipients recognized by 215 peers at the luncheon. Based
on the premise that facility excellence is a reflection of leadership excellence, this award recognizes the administrator of
record who provided that leadership throughout the award year. Eligibility for this award is based on three years of
skilled nursing facility (SNF) survey data, including the Health, Fire (Life Safety), and Complaint Surveys, as well as top
quartile performance on designated Quality Measures. The criteria also include an 80% or greater facility occupancy
and a three year avoidance of a Special Focus Facility status. This prestigious award is made possible with the support
of eHealth Data Solutions.
This award is in memory of Eli Pick who was a consummate member of ACHCA, dedicated to advancing
professionalism and leadership in long term care.

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on compliance of County of Strafford, New Hampshire's Register of Deeds Equipment Account based on our audit of the requirements referred to above. We conducted our audit of compliance in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America.

3. E-Mail to Investigator with Explanation of Summary of Transactions.

             

Attached please find my revised spreadsheet where I have added column G to indicate eligible e the Registry of Deeds' General Fund accounts 01.4120.223 a nd 01.4120.229 for 2010, 2011, and the General Ledger Report and copies of all invoices for those expenditures. These expenditures RSA Chapter 478, Section 478: 17 and total as follows:

2010 $89,640.00                                
2011 $85,857 .30                                
2012 $81,859.80                                
Total $257,357.10                                
These eligible expenditures more than cover the payback of subsidy for each year as follows:                      
2010 ($1,563.06)                                
2011 ($1,314.91)                                
2012 ($9,334.21)                                
Total $12,212.18                                
This information should certainly be considered and included in your investigation. These sizable attached documents supporting these numbers should alleviate concerns of whether or not it was legal to transfer the entire balance from the Equipment Account Fund (less $5) to pay back the General Fund and should alleviate concerns of the vague language of the RSA regarding non-lapsing funds. These transactions did occur the same year of the transfers. There are simply not enough surcharge fees deposited into the Deeds Equipment fund to support the eligible expenditures required to maintain the deeds equipment projects, so the County Commissioners have made a commitment through passage of their annual budgets to support these projects when the collection of surcharge fees were inadequate to cover the costs.
