Our Caregivers

We hire only the most qualified and caring individuals.

While there are many home health agencies for a patient to choose from, we believe our attention to the hiring of only the most qualified and caring individual’s sets us apart from all other agencies.

Pre-employment Screening

Test

All prospective caregivers must have successfully completed a rigorous screening program which includes:

Authentic fingerprint form

  • reference and criminal background checks
  • fingerprinting
  • motor vehicle record
  • health care license verification (where applicable)
  • clear health physical including test for TB
  • successfully pass a written and hands-on competency test

 

MD Home Health also has a strict alcohol and drug abuse “no-tolerance” policy with random testing conducted.

 

Newly Hired and Continuing Education

Mandatory continus education for all our caregivers

  • on-site visits by the RN or PT Supervisor to the patient’s home
  • weekly review of the caregiver’s notes documenting each patient visit and comparing to Doctor’s orders and Care Plan objectives
  • individual employee-supervisor conferences
  • discussions with the patient and MD Home Health support staff

Bonded & Insured

All caregivers are bonded to cover theft or damage to a patient’s property. They are also insured by a AAA-rated national company for professional/general liability and by a state-funded workers compensation policy. Combined, these coverage’s should give the patient and family the peace of mind they seek in a financially secure agency.
