House calls offer valuable services to homebound residents
Nurse Practitioners have found a perfect business niche in homecare. Residents best served by house calls are the elderly, chronically ill, people with disabilities and psychiatric conditions.
Our nurse Practitioners can provide services such as:
Order, perform and interpret diagnostic tests such as lab work and x-rays, flu shots, pneumonia vaccines and all other injections.
Diagnose and treat acute and chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, infections and injuries.
Prescribe medications and other treatments.
Manage a patient’s care while maintaining continual communication with the primary care physician.
These services may be performed in the home setting, whether it is and assisted living facility, skilled nursing facility or in the comfort of the individual’s home. Once a home visit has been made, your visit note and any other medical records will be sent to your primary physician.
