Skilled Nursing Services

The #1 goal of Spirit Home Health Care nurses is to keep patients safely at home and out of the hospital. Our nurses are responsible for evaluating the patient’s health and environment, educating the patient caregiver or other family on their medical condition. Nurses help them become more independent and coordinate care between physician, patients and their families and other care team members.

We have both registered nurses and licensed vocational nurses who can provide part time or full time shift care, as well as intermittent visits, depending on the patient's needs. Our registered nurses do a complete initial evaluation and also function as case managers to ensure that our patients get all the services they need and that those services are coordinated appropriately. Our goal is to improve the patient's health condition while helping the patient to stay in the security and comfort of their own home. All of our services are provided pursuant to a doctor's order.
