Day 2 – 2 weeks: Skilled Care

  • Upon you ordering medications, our nurses will ensure that the patient begins the medication regime as soon as possible by facilitating the patient obtaining the medication from the pharmacy, assisting your office in obtaining IV fluids, if needed, through an infusion supplier, and initiating education and administration when medications are in the home.
  • Nurses will provide frequent visits to closely monitor the patient’s condition, coordinate medications, and educate on flue management to prevent complications.
  • Home health aides will visit the patient as needed to assist with performing ADLs (bathing, toileting, cleaning, vital sign monitoring).
