HHCI registered nurses coordinate all aspects of care. From the first visit to routine follow-up visits, nurses educate the patient, and family members about medication, home medical equipment, and self-administration techniques. The hours of nursing care may include short term, intermittent, extended care, home visits and 24 hour care.
Some of our nurses' specialities include, but are not limited to:
- Wound Care
- High Tech
- Skilled Nursing Visits
Case ManagementCase Managers plan, coordinate, and monitor a wide range of services that meet the needs of older adults with very little family support. We begin with a comprehensive assessment of health, psychosocial, environmental, and social service needs. We develop an individualized package of services, and resources which includes a 24 hour caregiver service.
Medical Social WorkersMedical Social Workers assist families to understand and explain the statement of patient rights. They meet emotional needs by assisting with acceptance of losses, changes in family relationships, financial status, and dealing with stress.
Our registered nurses are on call 24 hours a day to answer questions, administer treatments, ensure that physicians’ orders are followed, and to provide direction and guidance to home health aides. A nurse is assigned to every one of our cases, whereby the nurse supervises and monitors the care provided to the client by the home health aides and other professionals involved in the patient’s care. Nurses are available to visit the patient’s home for nursing services, allowing the patient to receive the treatment needed in order to avoid the often-difficult and laborious trips to a hospital or doctor’s office for routine matters.
Occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy and home nursing are vital services that allow the elderly or disabled person to live with dignity and in the comfort of their own home while at the same time ensuring that they receive the personal attention and medical care that they require. Whether the need is for medical care such as administering injections and/or medication, drawing blood for lab work or providing the therapeutic services aimed at enhancing motor function or speech, therapists and nurses enable the elderly to continue living at home independently while ensuring the home remains a healthy and safe environment.
