What is At-Home Skilled Nursing Care?

Simply put, it refers to the specialized care that registered nurses provide in the comfort of your own residence. This flexible option is perfect for those who need ongoing care but prefer to receive it at home rather than in a hospital or nursing facility.

One of the key services that skilled nurses provide is wound care. Our nurses have the expertise to assess and treat a wide range of wounds, including surgical incisions, pressure ulcers, and diabetic foot ulcers. They work diligently to ensure proper healing and prevent infection, so you can focus on your recovery.

Educating patients is another vital aspect of skilled nursing care. Our nurses take the time to teach you how to manage your condition, understand your medications, and recognize warning signs. By empowering you to take an active role in your healthcare, we aim to promote better outcomes and help you achieve optimal health.

What is Ostomy Care?

Ostomy care involves maintaining a surgical opening and teaching patients how to care for it themselves. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Hygiene Guidance – Instructions on how to clean your ostomy and what products to use to protect your skin
  • Dietary Tips – Personalized meal plans that take into account your specific needs and any dietary restrictions
  • Emotional Support – Helping you navigate the emotional challenges of living with an ostomy and providing support every step of the way

Whether you’re recovering from surgery, managing a chronic wound, or dealing with an ongoing injury, expert wound care can make all the difference.

When you receive wound care from our skilled nurses, they will carefully assess your wound and meticulously clean and dress it using sterile techniques. They may use advanced products like antimicrobial dressings to protect your wound and encourage healthy tissue growth. Throughout the process, your nurse will monitor your wound for any signs of complications and teach you valuable self-care tips to support your healing journey.

By receiving expert wound care from our skilled nurses, you can rest assured that you’re getting the best possible care to prevent complications and facilitate healing. And with the convenience of in-home nursing, you can receive this vital service right in the comfort of your own home.

What IV Treatments Do Nurses Provide?

Our nurses provide a range of IV infusions tailored to your specific needs, including:

  • Antibiotics to aggressively fight severe infections
  • Hydration fluids if you’re unable to drink enough on your own
  • Pain medication infusions for acute pain management

Understanding your symptoms and warning signs enables you to actively participate in your treatment plan and make informed decisions. By taking preventive self-care steps, you can maintain your health and well-being.

Asking questions and addressing any concerns you may have also improves communication between you and your healthcare provider. When healthcare is a collaborative effort, it tends to lead to better outcomes.
