Home Health Nursing

SKILLED NURSING SERVICES

A licensed nurse provides part time or intermittent care to the homebound patient who is determined by the Physician to have acute or chronic medically predictable, recurring needs which require treatment such as observation and assessment, care of wounds, administration of intravenous solutions and patient teaching.

The types of chronic disabling conditions treated in the home include:  

• Circulatory problems • Neoplasm
• Heart conditions • Diabetes
• Stroke • Musculoskeletal problems
• Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease  

An acute condition may be an exacerbation of a chronic problem, an early release from the hospital or patient request for home therapy versus hospitalization. An important alternative to hospital care, home care has become a critical component in the continuum of care for cancer patients and many post operative situations.

CERTIFIED HOME HEALTH AIDE SERVICES
