Registered Nurses & Physical Therapists for Customized Home Health Care
Every patient is entitled to the highest quality of care, customized to their specific medical conditions and home environment. This is why, before care is ever delivered, a detailed Care Plan is developed by the MD staff in cooperation with the patient’s physician, hospital discharge planner and family.
A Registered Nurse (or Physical Therapist as appropriate) will meet with the patient and coordinate his/her home health care with their physician, hospital staff and discharge planner. From this will come the design of a customized Care Plan that addresses the medical, nutritional, physical, cultural, environmental, emotional and social needs of the patient, and be consistent with the diagnosis indicated on the physician’s orders.
Contents of the Care Plan will include the types of tasks to be performed, their frequency, and any special considerations or requests. After approval from the patient and/or loved ones and the attending physician, a copy of the Plan will be placed in a folder in the home and serve as the guide to the caregiver(s) on how to spend their time on each visit.
