Your patients coming home after experiencing an emergency may benefit from home health if they:
- Need follow-up care, medication teaching or medication management after an ER visit for their chronic condition(s).
- Frequently visit the ER due to exacerbations of their heart failure, atrial fibrillation, hypertension, or angina, and require multiple medicines to manage their condition.
- Have recently been prescribed oxygen and require education and safety information.
- Have caregivers who have significant challenges managing the care of their loved one at home, which leads to frequent ER visits.
- Would benefit from developing or improving self-management skills in managing their chronic condition to prevent hospitalizations.
- Could benefit from an action plan to help manage exacerbations before they become severe.
- Have frequent falls, reported longstanding dizziness and vertigo or are a high-fall risk and would benefit from education about fall prevention through safety awareness, strengthening and balance training.
- Need training on the safe use of assistive devices such as a walker, tub bench or sliding boards.
- Suffer with depression, Alzheimer’s, bipolar, schizophrenia or anxiety disorder and seek assistance through the ER.
- Are frail, elderly patients who present with flu symptoms and need additional clinical oversight at home.
- Have wounds that require additional oversight and dressing changes for optimal healing.
