A Higher Degree of Care
As patients go home with more serious conditions, they need a variety of supports to ensure they’re able to get well and remain independent. Home Nursing With Heart’s dedicated LIVE telehealth nurse and full-time medical social worker not only set us apart from other home health providers, they also offer patients and their families a higher degree of care that’s critical for recovery at home.
LIVE Telehealth and Triage Nurse
The only home health provider to offer the services of a dedicated Live Telehealth and Triage Nurse, you gain the additional point of contact and support that’s especially important to the more than 60% of our patients who are identified as high risk.
An experienced cardiology nurse, she not only initiates calls with patients to provide weekly or bi-weekly follow up, she’s also expert at building rapport with patients that increases the likelihood they’ll report changes that can signal the need for added care or attention – preventing the risk of hospital readmission or compromising safety at home. She’s also able to answer questions, provide medicine education and patient teaching – all in an effort to improve the care we provide at Home Nursing With Heart.
