Registered Nurse

All engagements with a Registered Nurse (RN) begin with an initial assessment, consisting of a physical assessment with medical history and medication review, development of an individualized service plan, and review of disease-specific education materials. Following the initial assessment, clients will receive quarterly visits – during which time the RN will review medication, provide a physical assessment addressing any changes or issues, conference with the Home Health Aide to discuss possible issues, and provide a service plan for the next quarter.

Additional nursing visits are available for a variety services, including wellness visits, medication management and pre-pour, administration of injectable medicines, education and monitoring of a new or unstable diagnosis, diet review and management related to specific diagnoses. RNs are also able to follow up with family members following visits if necessary.
