Skilled Nursing Care
Our nurses give patients personalized skilled care and teaching that addresses the unique needs of the patient’s recovery. All care is provided under the direction of the patient’s physician.
Our multidisciplinary team (physicians, nurses, therapists, aides, social worker) provides health care interventions, teaching and communication to help patients manage their disease and prevent complications. The focus is on improving quality of life for individuals with chronic conditions by preventing or minimizing the effects of the disease through integrated care.
In-home assessment, care planning, intervention and outcome evaluation by our skilled nurses and therapists ensure that a treatment plan is developed to meet the patient’s individualized needs for the best possible recovery.
Infusion therapy at home for medication and nutrition allows our patients to remain comfortable and secure in their own environment. This decreases the risk of infection, supports the healing of the patient and is less costly than a hospital stay.
Wound care involves the evaluation and treatment of a wound(s), including identifying potential causes of delayed healing and the modification of treatment when indicated. Our clinicians develop patient-centered treatment plans that supports all aspects of healing, including medication management, nutritional counseling, environmental evaluation, patient/caregiver education and specific care practices. Interventions are intended to prevent hospital readmissions.
Keeping track of medicines is a very important part of recovery and maintaining good health. Making sure meds are stored properly, refilled timely and taken according to the doctor’s instructions is necessary for proper healing and recovery. Our clinicians review medications every visit to assess the patient’s response, to make sure there are no changes or interactions and all medications are correctly taken by the patient.
Remote Patient Monitoring is the use of technology to track health related information and provide patient education at a distance. Remote patient monitoring is used by our nurses to provide our patients with additional resources to daily track and trend their health along with appropriate interventions to reduce avoidable re-hospitalizations. Daily patient triage can be provided without the need for a costly nursing visit. Vital patient information is promptly made available to the nurse and the physician to make certain our patient’s health status is on track.
Our Physical Therapists will help patients regain or improve their mobility; our Occupational Therapists will teach patients and families the skills needed to adapt to their environment; our Speech Therapists will help patients regain communication and cognitive skills, all provided in the comfort of home.
Our Physical Therapists help patients regain or improve their mobility by developing a personalized treatment plan to promote strength, movement and independence. Physical therapy focuses on balance, safe use of assistive devices, joint mobility and protection, stamina and activity tolerance, home safety, wound care and pain management.
Our Occupational Therapists teach patients and families the skills needed to adapt to their own environment during the course of recovery and healing. Safe use of adaptive equipment and techniques to perform tasks of daily living with attention to energy conservation, bladder control and stress management encourage self-care, independence and will reduce the risk for falls.
Our Speech Therapists will work with our patients to improve their quality of life through regaining the ability to eat and swallow, improving cognitive skills for increased independence, and helping to regain communication skills to express wants, needs and ideas. Patients with dementia or cognitive impairment respond better to treatment because they’re in a familiar setting – their own home.
