How Clients Benefit From Our Wound Care Program
We provide a smooth transition from care in an in-patient facility to care at home without a gap in care. This is accomplished through the services of a licensed nurse specializing in transitions from in-patient to an individual's home. A smooth transition requires personalized attention and intense coordination among the home care agency, the in-patient facility and the treating physician in order to ensure all of the patient’s needs for care, medication and equipment are identified and met. This often includes uninterrupted access to the following:
- IV therapy at home for infections
- Assistance with medication management
- Exercise programs to improve strength, endurance, and ability to do activities of daily living
- Personal care assistance by the home care aide
Coordination with other providers of medical equipment, community social services, medical transportation, etc.
