The client is provided with a treatment team consisting of two nurses to provide day to day perspective based observation and assessment. Using this team model promotes continuity of care.
Facilitation of participation on plan of care
Nurses teach clients the importance of compliance with all medications, appointments, and treatments to avoid de-compensation, exacerbation of symptoms, and the increased risk for hospitalization. This includes assistance with scheduling of appointments, arranging transportation (please note we do not provide transportation), cueing on appointment days, assistance with filling medications, taking medications, recognizing medication side effects, understanding medication regimen, recognizing signs and symptoms of disease, gaining insight into disease process, and utilizing taught interventions and coping skills.
Skilled professionals teach clients to maximize independence at home and utilize all available supports. Teaching includes but is not limited to, client management of plan of care including scheduling of appointments, obtaining medications, communicating with providers, and utilizing taught intervention and prevention measures.
The primary nurse maintains contact with all prescribers, pharmacies, and ancillary services to ensure medication accuracy and compliance. Upon admission to agency or discharge from an inpatient stay, the primary nurse reconciles medications between different prescribers and inpatient facility. Nurses can also administer medications and insulin if the client demonstrates a need. Lockbox for safety can be provided if patient demonstrates a need.
